1976). Some of the physiological effects of ozone are mediated through ethylene. Stress ethylene production correlates with injury but precedes its development (Tingey, 1980). The induction of ethylene by ozone in pea seedlings appears to play a role in the development of leaf damage; when ozoneinduced ethylene production is inhibited with the ethylene biosynthesis inhibitor aminoethoxyvinylglycine (AVG), leaf injury caused by ozone exposure is almost eliminated (Mehlhorn and Wellburn, 1987).

Mycelial growth is also affected by exposure to ozone. Hibben and Stotzky (1969) observed that fungi growth into agar media and aerial mycelium is repressed in the presence of ozone. , 2001). 0 µL/L ozone for four hours stops elongation, and causes swelling and collapse of the cell wall at the apical tips. Conidiophores begin to elongate again when removed from the ozone treatment. 0 µL/L ozone for 30 minutes, the conidia germinate while still attached to the conidiophores (Rich and Tomlinson, 1968).

Ogawa et al. 8 mg/L ozone for 10 minutes. However, these surface treatments have a limited effect in reducing decay. , 1999). However, effectiveness is irregular and the researchers believe that cracks on the berry surface or around the pedicel may protect some spores from the ozone treatment. In addition, latent infection in the fruit may be present and responsible for some of the fruit decay. 31 mg/L) is compared with sodium hypochlorite (54 mg/L) in a flotation tank used for pears, the number of viable propagules of Alternaria spp.
