Draining of treated fruit bins pre-storage

  • Apples that have been treated with a chemical or mixture of chemicals after harvest need to be placed on a hard standing for a period to allow the bins to drain prior to loading into store.
  • This will minimise the amount of liquid accumulating on the store floor during loading and will reduce the hazard that slippery floors present to fork-lift operators.
  • Additionally, drainage of excess liquid will minimise any potential injury from solutions containing DPA or calcium.  The excess liquid should be collected and disposed of safely and legally.
