Losses during storage of fruits are still considerable in some cases: about 20 - 30% of all produced harvested worldwide is not consumed because of fungal or physiological disorders. In the present paper, we show the research results of the pre-harvest treatments using the products: Rover - 0.2%, Sumilex - 0.1% and Topsin - 0.1%, as well as the post-harvest treatments using: Rover - 0.2% and Sumilex - 0.1%. The treatments performed in the orchard before the harvesting period have had a major effect to reduce the percent of rotten fruits in the storehouse. The reduction was above 50% in the case of Rover - 0.2%, as compared with the untreated control. The studied apple varieties ('Jonathan’, 'Generos’ and 'Golden Delicious’) originated from the private farmers in Voinesti - Dambovita.
