Abstract:

The experiment was carried out in the department of horticulture NEHU Tura Campus, Meghalaya during the year 2013-2015 by keeping in view of 11 treatments on the effect of postharvest quality of cut Gerbera flower for maintaining the vase life at room temperature. The cut flowers were harvested in the morning and were kept in vase solutions containing gibberrelic acid and benzyl adenine (with distilled water). Sucrose at 4% was added to all treatments as a base solution. The changes in relative fresh weight, water uptake, water loss, acceptability, scape bending, vase life at 50% fading and biochemical changes were estimated during the vase period. The results were observed that the relative fresh weight, water uptake, water loss and vase life decreased significantly during the experiment period for all the treatments. During the vase period, gibberrelic acid treatments maintained significantly more favourable relative fresh weight, water uptake, water loss, as compared to control treatment and benzyl adenine solution. The highest values of measured parameters were found more significant with application of gibberrelic acid at 50 ppm solution. The result revealed that the quality attributes and vase life of cut gerbera flowers were improved by the use of gibberrelic acid treatment.
