1) Is there any data on the effects of exposure to cold on nutrient content
of plants? (This has relevance for winter food production in protected cold
2) What studies are there that address the effects of post-harvest handling
practices on fresh fruit and vegetable quality and nutrient composition?
3) Is there any time-series data that addresses nutrient composition from
the 1940 compared to today?
Any information would be helpful.
