Abstract:

An investigation was carried out to study the effect of various pre-harvest management practices on the postharvest vase life of tuberose cv. Suvasini. Flower spikes harvested from different pre-treated were kept in a common vase solution containing Sucrose 4% in combination with Al2(SO4)3 500 ppm. Foliar application of GA3 250 ppm recorded significantly highest mean water uptake (16.47 g) followed by application of RDF 50% in combination with Poultry Manure 50% (14.79 g), whereas, significantly modest mean transpiration loss of water (15.06 g), significantly improved water balance (15.55 g) and significantly highest fresh weight change of flower spike (78.48 g) and reduced rate of electrolytes leakage have been recorded by application of RDF 50% in combination with Poultry Manure 50% which have ultimately contributed to an increase in the per cent of opened florets as well as vase life (13.46 days) of cut tuberose flower spikes.
