Smallholder farmers in developing countries do not have easy access to cold storage for several reasons. Cold storages with good control of temperature and humidity are energy intensive and expensive, involve a large initial capital investment, and

Celery (Apium graveolens L.) plants initiate seed stalks (bolt) after extended exposure to temperatures of less than 10°C. Hypobaric (low pressure) storage for up to 6 weeks of celery (‘Utah 52-70’) transplants at 0° delayed floral initiation. Plants stored for 2 weeks at 0° at 25 mm Hg or at atmospheric pressure showed no significant differences in bolting or yield compared to nonstored controls after transplanting to the field. Bolting and decreased yields became prevalent as the storage duration was increased to 4 and 6 weeks, particularly in air at atmospheric pressure. Measurement of the internal flower stalk length of marketable celery plants indicated that development was slower for plants which had been stored under hypobaric conditions prior to planting in the field than in those stored at atmospheric pressure.
