The 1st IFAC/CIGR/EURAENG/ISHS Workshop on Control Applications in Post-Harvest and Processing Technology (CAPPT '95) provides the opportunity to discuss and evaluate the state of the art and application of control methods in storage and processes of agricultural and horticultural products. This publication, generated from the papers at the workshop, provides a detailed assessment of present and future developments of key technologies within the agricultural and horticultural fields.
For academics and practitioners working on applications of control methods in storage and processes of agricultural and horticultural products.
