Abstract:

A study was carried out to assess the effect of combined application of bio organics and chemical fertilizers on post-harvest quality of sweet corn stored at different three storage interval i.e. 24, 48 and 72 hrs period. Sweet corn shelf life assessment was carried out in a factorial experiment with pre harvest bio-organics and chemical fertilizers application as one factor and different storage period as another factor. Pre harvest factor and post-harvest storage period significantly affected the post-harvest quality. The moisture content, ascorbic acid, total soluble solids and total soluble sugar as well as sensory qualities of sweet corn were significantly affected by the different pre harvest treatment combinations at harvest and at different storage period in ambient conditions. The storage period also showed significant influence on (moisture content, ascorbic acid, total soluble solids and total soluble sugar as well as sensory qualities). At the end of 72 hrs storage period, sweet corn subjected to had dropped total soluble sugar 62.78 %, loss in moisture 4.82 %, decrease in ascorbic acid content 42.28%, increase in total soluble solids 4.27% as compared to harvest in all the treatments. Husk colour and kernel appearance were significantly retained up to 24 hrs of storage period in T8 and was at par with treatment T13. The sensory qualities of sweet corn also significantly had similar descending trend with advancement of storage period.
