Abstract:

In forced ventilated storage method the physiological weight loss was recorded highest in top compartment as 27.41 per cent and least at 27.29 per cent in bottom compartment during 90 days of storage. During the 90 days of storage, sprouting loss was 5 per cent in natural ventilated structure was observed as minimum loss and maximum loss was recorded in 11.5 per cent in forced ventilated storage structure. The minimum decay per cent of bulbs was recorded as 3.8 per cent in forced ventilated storage structure and maximum decay percent of stored aggregatum onion is observed as 13 per cent. The minimum and maximum value of moisture content in natural ventilated storage structure was recorded as 79.57 and 82.49 per cent. And in forced ventilated storage structure the minimum and maximum moisture content was observed as 79.80 and 79.85 per cent.
