During this module we will be looking at the factors that influence post-harvest quality of crops and how we can impact this with the use of optimum post-harvest storage environments. We will be exploring how to select such storage environments and we will learn how to describe a range of post-harvest treatments that can also maximize yield quality and minimize losses.


  • Understand which factors influence the quality of crop post-harvest
  • Describe the principles of optimum post-harvest storage environments
  • Select post-harvest storage environments for a range of harvested crops
  • Describe a range of post-harvest treatments that will maximize quality of your yield
