Abstract:

This study was carried out to evaluate the best ripening agent(s) for mango cv. Dashehari. For this mangoes were treated with ripening agent(s) in fourteen configuration viz., without treatment (T0), ethephon (T1), dried plash leaves (T2), wet kachnar leaves (T3), wet amaltas leaves (T4), wheat straw (T5), rice straw (T6), newspaper (T7), white paper (T8), tissue Paper (T9), brown paper bag (T10), wheat grain (T11), jute bag (T12), and cardamom (T13), upto six days, replicated four times under complete randomized design. The results revealed that at ambient storage condition treatment T2 (Dried plash leaves) was better with post-harvest physiology and enzymatic activity attributes viz., Ripening Index, Ethylene, Respiration rate, Polygalacturonase (PG), Pectin methyl esterase (PME), value higher and Physiological loss of weight lower during the ripening period (up to 6 days).


Keywords: Mango, Post-harvest physiology, Enzymatic activity, Ambient, Ripening agent(s).
