Handling and storage of horticultural produce in Kenya


, : Handling and storage of horticultural produce in Kenya. Acta Horticulturae (49): 51-54

The main requirements for improvements in the handling, presentation and storage of horticultural produce in Kenya are: (1) marketing at the optimum stage of maturity; (2) avoidance of improper handling; (3) use of appropriate containers; (4) provision of adequate transport facilities; (5) grading of produce at collection centres; (6) appropriate packing for internal and for external sales, and (7) increase in cold storage facilities.

Increased expression of carbonic anhydrase-related protein (CA-RP) VIII has previously been shown in colorectal carcinoma. Since CA-RP has no catalytic carbonic anhydrase (CA) activity, the present study attempted to elucidate its biological signi...
