Abstract
1-Methylcyclopropene (1-MCP) is a new postharvest chemical application that attracting the attention of both scientists who studying upon agriculture and biology and people supported by agricultural industry world-wide. The scientific researches on this compound has shown it is a powerful inhibitor of ethylene action and capable of maintaining postharvest quality in many fresh horticultural products. According to numerous researchers, 1-MCP is interpreted that a universal ‘magic bullet’ that will cure many postharvest problems. 1-MCP is a tool that can help scientists make major advances in understanding the role of ethylene in plants. This plan growth regulator prevents ethylene effects in a broad range of fruits, vegetables and floriculture crops. Depending on the species being treated, 1-MCP may have a variety of effects on respiration, ethylene production, volatile production, chlorophyll degradation and other color changes, protein and membrane changes, softening, disorders and diseases, acidity and sugars.
