Abstract:

Now a days, vegetables prices are hiked daily due to reduction in area of cultivation, poor storage and low distribution. Carrot (D. carota L. var. sativus) is one of the most important edible root vegetables around the world and cultivated in temperate zones. Currently, its production and distribution were retarded due to postharvest decay. This is caused by a ubiquitous soil borne bacteria Erwinia carotovoroa subsp. carotovora (Ecc). In this background this study was carried out for management of postharvest decay through eco-friendly approaches. Under this study, botanicals, plant volatiles, organic acids, organic salts and essential oils were used against E. carotovora subsp. carotovora under in vitro. Based on antibacterial efficacy, curative application was formulated against decay in carrot by dipping under laboratory conditions. Out of these all treatments, EC formulated consortia (cinnamon + lemongrass + thyme) oils at 0.1% given the better results against disease reduction (98.0%), weight loss (3.0%), and preserve the edible nature.
