Being "cross-trained" in horticulture and food science, I consider produce quality to result from the production variables such as crop cultivar, production strategies and environmental influences, as well as from post-harvest variables (processing, storage, packaging, transportation, marketing procedures and market environments and ultimately, consumer handling). Within this complex arena, I have most recently focused upon the phytonutritional quality of black raspberry and other fruits within the inter-collegial, inter-institutional Dietary Intervention Program. I bring to the Center my perspective on the complexity of crop quality determinants "from crops to the clinic to the consumer."
