Continue laboratory tests to develop new and promising treatments to control postharvest decay of citrus fruit that are EPA "reduced risk", listed in the USDA National Organic Program, or are FDA GRAS-listed compounds. We will examine the impact the mode of application, of heat on their effectiveness and residues, and their compatibility with other compounds such as chlorine and other fungicides.
