Abstract:

In order to extend the shelf life of banana cultivar Tella Chakkerakeli was fumigated with 1-methylcyclopropane (1-MCP) at four different concentrations (100, 200, 300 and 400 ppb) @ 24h exposed time and stored at ambient conditions. Among all the treatments, 400 ppb was found to be an effective in extending shelf-life with recorded minimum ethylene evolution rate (0.440 µl kg-1 hr-1), physiological loss in weight (4.739%), pulp to peel ratio and maximum fruit firmness retention (9.665 kgcm-2). The entire 1-MCP treated banana showed better results over control (kept at open air @ 24h).
