Abstract:

Present study was carried out at Horticulture Research Farm and Postharvest Laboratory of Department of Horticulture, Institute of Agricultural Sciences, Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi, India. Potato crop was grown 2 years i.e. 2015-16 and 2016-17 in the field. Experiment consisted of control, recommended dose of fertilizer (RDF:150,80,120 kg/ha), RDF + 1 kg B, RDF + 2 kg B, RDF + 3 kg B, RDF + 30 kg S, RDF + 40 kg S, RDF + 1 kg B + 30 kg S, RFD + 2 kg B + 30 kg S, RDF + 3 kg B + 30 kg S, RDF + 1 kg B + 40 kg S, RDF + 2 kg B + 40 kg S, RDF + 3 kg B + 40 kg S treatments in a Randomized Block Design and replicated thrice. Significant effect of application of boron and sulphur during growing of crop was observed after storage and reconditioning of potato. The treatment RDF + 2 kg B + 40 kg S showed maximum starch content, specific gravity and total soluble solids after storage and reconditioning. This treatment also exhibited maximum dry matter content after storage and minimum number of sprouted tubers after reconditioning which was significant with application of RDF + 3 kg B + 30 kg S.
