all significantly influenced by small differences in temperature. An increment in core sweet cherry temperature as small as 2 to 2.5 °C led to significant reduction in quality. The temperature closest to ideal was 0.5 °C, and sweet cherries stored at

the temperature of the air was shaded. There was no significant difference between the pulp and the air temperatures at the center of the load. Because of the significant thermal inertia of the pallet core, both temperatures remained relatively

, including regions that historically have not been considered ideal for hop production because they lack low temperatures for sufficiently long winter dormancy ( Bauerle, 2019 ; Neve, 1991 ). As the PNW prepares for increasing heat waves, and as production

the 3-d period mimics the minimum time materials would be held in the interior or core of the compost piles before turning or mixing of the piles would occur and the time needed at those temperatures in past studies to kill weed seeds and pathogens

Many apples grown by producers in the southeastern United States are sold directly to the consumer through farm markets. Fruit in these markets may be held at high temperatures (>68 °F) for prolonged periods before sale. Exposure to such high

testing was determined using a hand-held temperature-compensated refractometer (Fisher Scientific, Nepean, Ont.). After storage, the incidence of core browning, internal browning, and storage rot were determined as a percentage of fruit with the problem
