Storage Temperatures and Humidity

Segment: 8. Plant Culture & Propagation, Standard: Store crops using methods that apply fundamentals of plant management. (Pathway II.C.2)


The temperature and humidity that crops are stored at varies with the type of crop being produced. A discussion of storage temperatures and humidity could include cool storage, ambient temperature storage, high humidity, low humidity, and any combination thereof. A discussion of temperature and humidity could also differentiate between the common differences between the storage of different crop types, such as flower, vegetable, fruit, or grain production.
