A University of Maryland and University of Delaware research study provided preliminary evidence for improving watermelon harvest buses with a change in the food contact surfaces.  By using vinyl liners and rubber floor mats  that can be cleaned and sanitized, microbial loads were reduced compared to the industry standard of used carpet.  The liners and mats also provided cushioning that protected watermelon surfaces against damage during harvest.
