Controlled Atmosphere (CA) storage has been around for decades and is an affordable long-term storage solution for fresh produce. So, what is the difference between CA and DCA?.
CA storage works with recognised safe O2 and CO2 regimes created by research stations to cover all sorts of growing anomalies inmost global climates.
Dynamic Controlled Atmosphere (DCA) storage monitors the health of the fruit during the storage period, instead of a set regime the oxygen will be reduced until the Low Oxygen Limit (LOL) is reached and then increased to a safe storage level. This LOL can vary annually depending on both climate and growing conditions
