Abstract:

Cut roses were pulsed with the best pulsing combination of Al2(SO4)3 400 ppm in combination with Sucrose 4% (arrived during the previous pulsing experiments) at room temperature (22±2oC) for 24 hours and then packed with different packaging material and stored at 2-4oC for 5 days and then evaluated for their vase life. Among the different packaging material tried polythene sheet in combination with corrugated fibre board boxes (PS+CFB) followed by tissue paper in combination with corrugated fibre board boxes (TP+CFB) increased vase life (10.2 and 10.0 days respectively) and maintained normal flower opening and quality of the flower by lowering the activities of respiratory enzymes as well as limiting the gaseous exchange during storage when compared with other treatments.
