Iranian Onion Cargo handling

Due to their high sensitivity, onions must be handled with great care. Onions damaged by setting them down roughly, for instance, undergo greater respiratory intensity and self-heat.

All cargo handling must be done at the required temperature. Rain and snow can cause moisture to contaminate the cargo, leading to self-heating, sprouting, root growth, and packaging decay.
