[Objective] To study the control efficiency of 45% Prochloraz amines ME and 500 g/L Triabendazole SC for the post-harvest diseases of citrus fruits, and the economic and efficient dosage and application techniques. [Method] Carry out prevention and control test of common post-harvest diseases of tangerines, such as anthracnose, green mold and penicillium disease. [Result] The experiment agent 45% Prochloraz amines ME showed excellent effect in controlling postharvest anthracnose of citrus fruits, the 45th-day control efficiency was above 73% ; the 45th-day control efficiency of 45% Prochloraz amines ME and 500 g/L Triabendazole SC for green mold and penicillium disease was above 72%. [ Conclusion] 45% Prochloraz amines ME and 500 g/L Triabendazole SC are two ideal agents for preventing and controlling post-harvest diseases and safeguarding quality of citrus fruits.
