The Controlled Atmosphere (CA) Clinic is organized by the Deparrtment of Horticulture at Michigan State University to share new information relating to controlled atmosphere storage and warehousing of apple and other temperate fruit.  The CA Clinic serves to faciliate communication between researchers, industry spokespersons, technical experts and packinghouse and storage operators.  Attendees should expect to be brought up-to-date on the most recent scientific findings and related practical developments in the field of CA and refrigerated storage.  Attendance, refreshments and lunch will be provided free of charge. 

Featured speakers for this event are Dr. Jennifer DeEll (ONT) and Dr. Carolina Torres (WSU, virtually) who are the nation's leading experts on the storage of apples and other perishables.  Dr. DeEll will talk about long-term DCA storage of Gala and Ambrosia storage issues.  Dr. Torres will speak on our current understanding of lenticel disorders.   Other presentations will deal broadly with the challenges of successful production, harvest, handling, sorting and storage of apples (and asparagus!).
