The web-based Postharvest Handling Decision Tool is one of the first resources created for the Iowa Fruit and Vegetable Working Group. Users can find details on handling four vegetable groups after harvest: bunched greens, tender crops (excluding tomatoes, zucchini and summer squash), dry-cured alliums and bulk roots and tubers. The site also has information about equipment and packing shed considerations, and food safety.
