NAVARRO-LOPEZ, Erik R. et al. Postharvest quality in fruit of hydroponic tomato cultivated with wastewater and well water. Rev. Chapingo Ser.Hortic [online]. 2012, vol.18, n.3, pp.263-277. ISSN 2007-4034.

According to producers from Valle del Mezquital, Hidalgo, the use of wastewater improves postharvest quality of horticultural products; however, there is not enough scientific evidence that prove it. Postharvest quality in tomato fruits produced with waste water (WF) and well water (WWF) in hydroponic systems was evaluated. Fruits were harvested and stored during 10, 20, 30 and 40 days, under the following conditions: 4 °C with 90 % RH; 10 °C with 82 % RH and 20 °C with 62 % RH. Hue angle, total soluble solids, titratable acidity, firmness, weight loss and pH of the fruit were evaluated at the end of each period. Fruits refrigerated at 4 °C and 10 °C during different storage periods showed differences in hue angle (P ≤ 0.05): hue values were lower in WF than in WWF. This indicates that WF fruits were redder. °Brix in non- refrigerated fruits during 10, 20, 30 and 40 storage days were greater in WF than in WWF. Total soluble solids were higher in WWF than in WF at 10 °C during 30 and 40 storage days and at 4 °C during 30 storage days. Titratable acidity had differences only in refrigerated fruits at 4 °C during 20 storage days: WWF showed higher titratable acidity than WF. Firmness, weight loss and pH of the fruit did not show differences for the factor type of water.
