Abstract:

Chemicals belonging to different groups were employed in the vase water either alone or in combination to assess their effect on microbial growth during vase life period of cut rose cv. First Red. The individual chemical treatments SHC 20 ppm, Ca(NO3)2, 250 ppm, AA 150 ppm have recorded significantly least microbial growth from their respective groups. Among the Sucrose concentrations Sucrose 3% has recorded significantly highest microbial growth in the vase solution. Sucrose 3% was combined together with the best treatments of the above said, as two chemical, three chemical and four chemical combinations to test their combined effect on microbial growth. Among all the combinations SHC 20 + Sucrose 3% followed by SHC 20 + Ca(NO3)2 250 and SHC 20 + AA 150 + Sucrose 3% have inhibited the microbial growth in the vase solution. The present study suggests that the incorporation of anti-microbial compounds in the vase solution increased the flower diameter as well as vase life by preventing the proliferation of microbes in the vase solution.
