Abstract:

The present trial was carried out at Yavat, District Pune, Maharashtra, India – 412214 during the month of October 2017. The aim of this study was to examine the effect of two treatments on the storage life and the post-storage life of Tuberose loose flowers cv. ‘Local’. The 2 treatments applied consisted of spraying of GA3 @ 50 ppm + Sucrose @ 1% + Silver Thiosulphate (STS) @ 50 ppm (T2) along with control (T1). Storage life of these flowers was higher with treatment T2 than the treatment T1, while kept inside cold storage at 40C with 93% RH. Post-storage life was also higher with T2 than in control (T1).
