Abstract:

Prolonging the post-harvest life is essential to assure more life of flowers. For prolonging vase life, we should study about the pre-harvest, harvest and post- harvest factors of flower crops that ultimately affects the flower life. There are a series of steps involved to prepare flowers for market after harvesting known as post-harvest handling. These steps include: Harvesting, Conditioning, Pre-cooling, Pulsing, Grading, Bunching, Wrapping, Packaging, Storage, Transport and Sale. All the factors that affect post-harvest life of a flower should managed properly to provide optimum condition for plant growth. Different biocide, holding, pulsing solution, growth regulators and different storage temperature are used to promote vase life of lowers.
