Abstract:

An experiment was carried out to study the effect of different packing and storage conditions on vase life of cut carnation cv. Kiro. The flowers packed in polypropylene at 5°C cold storage under wet condition recorded significantly the lowest physiological loss in weight (g flower-1), as well as diameter of the flower (cm) with lowest electrolyte leakage (%) resulting in increased vase life of cut carnation cv. Kiro upto a period of 24.70 days.
