Integrate advanced techniques for monitoring and mitigating the environmental factors in storage and investigate their impact on postharvest physiology of potato.
Precision postharvest storage systems will be assembled and optimized for monitoring and mitigating the environmental factors to investigate their impact on postharvest physiology of potato. Experiments will be conducted in a multi-institutional research setting, and the cooperator will carry out the following: 1. Provide expertise on advanced measurement techniques, computational fluid dynamics simulations, and AI/ML techniques. 2. Integrate advanced measurement techniques to assemble model storage systems for monitoring the environmental factors in storage (e.g., temperature, humidity, gas/volatile composition). 3. Ensure the experiments are completed in a timely manner for the outlined potato physiology experiments. 4. Contribute preparation of a final report to distribute the results.
