Abstract:

Investigation was conducted to study the “Response of pre-harvest spraying treatments of chemicals and plant growth regulators on post-harvest losses and quality attributes of sapota fruit cv. Kalipatti”. 15 years old sapota trees were sprayed one month before harvest with different chemicals (Calcium chloride @ 2%, Calcium nitrate @ 2%, Calcium sulphate @ 2% and Potassium chloride @ 2%) and different level of plant growth regulators (GA3 @ 50 and 100 mg / l, NAA @ 50 and 100 mg / l) along with control (Water spray and Absolute). Harvested fruitswere stored in laboratory at room temperature. Pre harvest spray of CaCl2 @ 2 % recorded minimum physiological loss in weight, spoilage percentage with maximum TSS, total sugar, reducing sugar, non-reducing sugar and ascorbic acid during 12 days storage period of the sapota fruit.


Keywords: Sapota, Pre-harvest, Calcium chloride, Calcium nitrate, Calcium sulphate and Potassium chloride, GA3, NAA.
