Studies on D10 Values (γ- Irradiation) of Five Postharvest Fungal Pathogens and their Effect on the Biochemical Properties of Fresh capsicum Fruits

Fungi are increasingly being blamed for spoiling commercially valuable fruits and vegetables. Five postharvest fungi of pepper fruits were studied for their population responses to gamma irradiation: Aspergillus niger, Aspergillus fumigatus, Colletotrichum capsici, C. trumcatum, and Fusarium solani.
