Abstract:

Investigation was carried out in the Department of Post harvest Management of fruit, Vegetable and Flower crops, Faculty of Agriculture, Post Graduate Institute of Post Harvest management of Dr.Balasaheb Sawant Konkan Krishi Vidypeeth, Dapoli during 2018-2019 to find out the effect of post harvest chemical treatment on post harvest life of Jasmine (Jasminum sambac L. Aiton) in Factorial Completely randomized Design (FCRD) with Ten treatment and three replications. Packaging material of polyethylene (PE) bags 200 gauge without ventilation is used. The periodical observations recorded every 24 hrs from 0hrs to 72 hrs. were physiological loss of weight, freshness index, flower opening index, colour retention score, fragrance index and shelflife. Results of this experiment envisaged that flowers treated with 4% boric acid proved effective in extending shelf life of Jasmine flower buds up to 81 hours with less physiological loss of weight, flower opening index, colour retention score and fragrance index and high freshness index and shelflife.
