The Florida Postharvest Horticulture Tour brings participants “up-close and personal” to learn how fresh subtropical, tropical and temperate fruits, vegetables and ornamental crops are handled. With exclusive, behind-the-scene visits hosted by top management, the group will become familiar with a variety of methods and technologies employed to harvest, pack, cool, ship and receive fresh crops. Visits will include large and small-scale operations to contrast various technologies, a fresh-cut processor, and a major supermarket distribution center.

This program is coordinated by Dr. Steven Sargent and Dr. Mark Ritenour, specialists in the area of postharvest technology at the University of Florida-IFAS. It is designed for produce industry professionals, educators, researchers and graduate students in such diverse areas as field and packinghouse management, transportation, sales, and import/export.
