Postharvest Information Network
The old Postharvest Information Network website has been retired along with the aging server that hosted the site. We realize that this is an inconvenience to many of you who relied on that source for the articles, reports, and news articles provided by Dr. Kupferman. Much of that old content is still available but will need to be requested until we have developed a new archive on the Postharvest Systems website. To request articles please contact Chris Hedges, Postharvest ITT.
