Storage serves to lengthen the time interval during which a product can be marketed and is an essential part of the production-marketing-utilization chain for most agricultural products (Kays and Paull, 2004). This is especially true when production is substantially greater than can be utilized during the harvest season. Conservation of surplus product through storage enables the processor or consumer to obtain the product over a longer period. Likewise, storage gives the producer a chance to market additional product, increasing monetary returns. Thus, some form of storage is an integral part of the overall production of Jerusalem artichokes, whether for fresh market, propagation material, or industrial use.
