Excerpt from Tests of Overseas Shipments of California Citrus Fruit, Interrelations Between Fruit Condition, Biphenyl Content, Transit Temperature, Delayed Loading, and Biphenyl Pad Placement: Marketing Research Report 830 Penicillium - induced decay and soilage can be suppressed in shipments of citrus fruits if paper pads treated with biphenyl are placed in the shipping containers. However, varying quantities of biphenyl are absorbed by the fruit and under certain conditions of transport and handling, the fruit may retain biphenyl resi dues that exceed legally permissible tolerances. (the European Economic Community (eec) accepts any residue value at or below 70 parts per million.) To obtain data on the problem of giving citrus fruit maximum biphenyl protection with out exceeding acceptable biphenyl residues, and to obtain information on transit temperature and condition of fruit transported by several methods, test shipments of citrus fruits were sent from California to Rotterdam, the N ether lands, in 1967. These test shipments consisted of 36 orange lots, nine lemon lots, and six grapefruit lots. Most of the fruit was sent by rail to the Atlantic seaboard for transit to Rotterdam by ship. Some, however, was sent by ship from California to Rotterdam via the Panama Canal. The temperatures of most of the test ship ments of oranges sent east by rail were higher than desirable while the oranges were in the railcars.
