Abstract:

The investigation entitled, “Effect of different holding solutions on postharvest life of Iris (Iris orientalis Mill.)” was carried out at the experimental farm and laboratory of Department of Floriculture and Landscape Architecture, Dr Yashwant Singh Parmar University of Horticulture and Forestry, Nauni, Solan, in the year 2018. Experiment was laid out in Completely Randomized Design with 10 treatments and 3 replications. Holding cut spikes in solution comprising of Sucrose (3 %) + 8-HQC (300 ppm) + BA (150 ppm) resulted in best treatment for most of the postharvest parameters such as amount of solution consumed (116.58 ml), appearance of cut bloom (4.62), days taken for opening of floret (2.40), floret diameter (14.94 cm), vase life (15.87 days) and minimum per cent weight change/loss 23.13 %) of the cut spikes with 100 % bud opening.
