Green Chemistry in Horticulture

Agriculture Production processes, especially those that are intensive such as protected horticulture, degrade the environment to numerous extents. The protected horticulture sector is likely to use low toxicity products that will maintain the hygienic control of vegetables grown in protected environments (greenhouses, tunnels and padding). Growers need to combine good agricultural practices and standards of quality assurance, so food is healthy and attractive when consumed by the population. This presents a global challenge for the protected horticulture industry. One of the best approaches suggested for horticulture is the integration of new and environmentally, eco-friendly technologies such as innovative green chemistry, as part of a policy-driven approach to prevent and reduce the contamination. This strategy can be achieved by complying with the principles of green chemistry which promotes sustainability, efficiency and economy. Use of peroxyacetic acid mixtures in liquid solutions meets all of the principles of green chemistry. It is promising to integrate green chemistry approaches in protected horticulture and food industry to release biodegradable components that do not pollute the environment.
