Currently, the use of chemical agents remains the major method of choice by far for managing postharvest rots and the few postharvest biocontrol products that are commercially available have limited use, mostly in niche markets. It seems that the last 5 years have seen a tremendous amount of ?reinventing the wheel? and little progress has been made towards wider commercial implementation of effective and economically viable biocontrol products. At present there are only two commercial products available in the market for postharvest use, each having a very small market share of the technologies used to manage postharvest diseases. Biosave and ?Shemer?.
