Abstract:

An experiment was carried out to find the effect of different organic manures and to evaluate the efficacy of these organic manures on physical and chemical characteristics of mango cv. Dashehari at ambient storage conditions. Eighteen year old trees were treated with different organic manures at various concentration i.e. FYM @ 100, 125, 150 kg/tree; Vermicompost @ 25, 50, 75; Poultry manure @ 25, 50 kg/tree, 75 kg/tree; and Neem cake @ 10, 20, 30 Kg/tree in ‘Randomized Block Design’ with three replications. The application of 75 kg poultry manure per tree gave maximum fruit weight from day of harvest to 8 days of storage. The maximum physiological loss in weight was recorded in control trees fruit, whereas, minimum physiological loss in weight was recorded with application of 75 kg vermicompost per tree. Maximum titrable acidity and ascorbic acid was noted with application of 75 kg vermicompost per tree. The total sugars, reducing sugars and non-reducing sugars from the 2 days of storage to 8 days of storage was found maximum in 75 kg poultry manure per tree. These findings suggested that the application of 75 kg vermicompost and 75 kg poultry manure was most effective in enhancing quality characteristics of mango fruits.
