2014 Blueberry Workshop Presentation — Post Harvest Handling

Post harvest handling of blueberries is a concern of blueberry growers.  Food safety and shelf-life are important components in the blueberry industry.  Dr. Frank Matta, professor at Mississippi State University in Starkville, stood in for Dr. Juan Silva (also of MSState) to give a presentation on post harvest handling of blueberries.  Dr. Silva’s graduate student, Amanda Pegg, was also there.  Attendees helped with a blueberry tasting she had set up as part of her thesis project.  Always good when we have industry folks help out with research!  The presentation by Dr. Silva, Dr. Matta, and Ms. Pegg can be found below.
