Deliver better potatoes to your customer with 1,4SHIP®. This ready-to-use, aerosol-dormancy enhancer treats fresh potatoes after packing—right in the shipping vehicle. It helps preserve potato quality, which reduces load rejections and downgrades. Potatoes maintain their “field fresh” quality and crispness. The active ingredient, 1,4-dimethylnaphthalene, is identical to a naturally-occurring plant substance found in potatoes and other vegetables.
