Insect Pest Control

International Database on Commodity Tolerance (IDCT)
Joint service of the IAEA and Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO). A source of information that gathers and interprets the literature about commodity quality after phytosanitary irradiation treatment. It should aid stakeholders in Member States to identify the doses of radiation that are tolerated by different commodities including fresh fruits, vegetables and cut flowers in planning for commercial use of the technology. The information may also help users of the technology determine optimum methods of applying irradiation including pre- and post-treatment handling and if radiation may augment quality or prolong shelf life. It may furthermore be used to identify gaps and inconsistencies in knowledge that may be explored by researchers.
