Application

The 1-MCP’s application is quite easy:

 

First step:

-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.

 

Second step:

-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.

 

Noted:

-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.
