Tomato is the most remunerative crop widely cultivated around the globe. Tomato is referred to as “the poor man's orange” because of its nutritive value. Postharvest diseases are an integral part of the crop system. Tomato crop is affected by various postharvest diseases like grey mould (Botrytis cinerea), Rhizopus rot (Rhizopus stolonifer), anthracnose (Colletotrichum coccoides, C. gloeosporoides, C. dematium), early blight (Alternaria solani), bacterial soft rot (Erwinia carotovora subsp. carotovora), phoma rot (Phoma destructive), southern blight (Sclerotium rolfsii) and Fusarium rot. Postharvest practices like harvesting, storage, processing, packaging, transportation and marketing have a vital role in reducing the postharvest diseases of tomato.
