Control of Soft Rot after Harvest of Cabbage in Indonesia
The highland of West Java is the main cabbage producing district of Indonesia. Soft rot sometimes occurs and causes severe damage because of high air temperature and poor transport technology. Therefore, it was examined to develop simple and low-cost improved methods to control the occurrence of soft rot after the harvest of cabbages. Consequently, drying was recognized as one of the important factors to control soft rot. The cement treatment to the cut end is being used in Indonesia at present and was an effective way of suppressing soft rot. Drying the cut end is thought to contribute to greatly improving the control effect. Furthermore, keeping cabbage indoors for more than one day after the harvest was a more simple and easy way to prevent the occurrence of soft rot.
