Perishable agricultural product require great attention to sustain their supply on the market. For the lack of appropriate handling and storage, significant amount of product goes waste before it reaches market and consumption. During the peak production season, farmers are forced to sell the products at extremely low prices particularly for tomato because of lack of appropriate storage structure. Therefore losses can also be minimized by storing them at low temperature and high relative humidity environment.
