The 1-MCP’s application is quite easy:
-Put it in 0.1mol/L alkaline solution, such as NaOH solution.
-Rate: 1g of 1-MCP in 40-60ml of 0.1mol/L NaOH solution.
-Remark: we use NaOH solution instead of water, as when the tempreture is lower than 0℃ in storage, water will freeze and can not work.
-When soluted, the 1-MCP will automatically release into the air.
And the crops are surrounded with 1-MCP mixed air. It is so called “fumigation”, or technically called 1-MCP treatment.
-Remark: In order to have a thorough and successful result, a air-sealed space is required.
-1g of 1-MCP powder can be used in the room of 15 cubic meter.
-Divide the solution in different place of storage can let 1-MCP spread adequately.
-Put solution in the position which higher than crops.
