Much research has been devoted to climate control methods to delay the spoilage of vegetables during long-distance transportation, even by road, rail, and sea. Store the package at low temperature to suppress the respiration rate of the vegetables. At the same time, the oxygen content in the container is gradually reduced, and the amount of carbon dioxide is relatively increased, thus delaying the ripening period of vegetables for more than a few weeks.
