PRECISIONS TECHNOLOGIQUES CONCERNANT LA CONSERVATION DE L'OIGNON EN ENTREPOTS DE GRANDE CAPACITE

C. Iordachescu
This paper shows the problem of onion storage in cold stores which are composed of large cells.

The capacities of cells are larger than 250 – 300 tons.

There are presented the results of the investigations and of the technological tests concerning:

  • technological details of a flow for onion storage for a period of 6 – 8 months;
  • investigations concerning maturation grade at which onions must be harvested for storage;
  • the behaviour of some varieties of onions, produced by different methods of growing, in the storage time;
  • methods for prevention and reduction of losses and depreciations of onions stored for a long time;
  • technological objects for design and construction stores of onions;
  • the investigations of Rumanian experts.

The data presented are obtained by the processing of the results obtained in specialized stores for onion with a capacity of 5,000 tons.

The conclusions of this paper can serve to the orientation of onion growing and to the organization of the stores for onion preservation for a long period.

At the same time, in this paper are given data for discussion, completion and improving of standards concerning onion storage.
