“To be able to take that (temperature) down initially and immediately start the ripening process, then go through fumigation before you bring it all the way down, should have a positive impact,” he said.

The new regulations should have a favorable effect on Argentina’s blueberry deal, said Tom Richardson, vice president of global development for Los Angeles-based The Giumarra Cos.

The fumigation process now will be less stressful on the fruit while still controlling the pests, he said.

“It will give Argentina product better shelf life, provide a better eating experience for consumers and lead to repeat purchases,” he said.
