Abstract:

A field experiment was undertaken on cabbage cv. Golden Acre at Horticultural Research cum Demonstration Farm, Department of Horticulture, B.A. College of Agriculture, Anand Agricultural University, Anand in order to evaluate the performance of micronutrients (Zn and Fe) and growth regulators (Gibberellic acid and Naphthalene acetic acid) alone and their combinations applied as foliar spray for shelf life of cabbage. Among different treatments of micronutrients, zinc sulphate 0.5% recorded significantly minimum physiological head weight loss (17.94%), higher head compactness (6.13 grade) and green head color (5.97 grade) after 12th days of storage of cabbage head at ambient temperature. Among different levels of growth regulators, GA3 @ 100 ppm recorded significantly minimum physiological head weight loss (18.15 %), higher head compactness (6.02 grade) and green color head (5.78 grade) after 12th days of storage of cabbage head at ambient temperature. Among all the interactions of micronutrients and growth regulators treatments, the interaction M1G2 (zinc sulphate 0.5% + GA3 100 ppm) recorded significantly higher grade of head compactness (6.33 grade) and green head color (6.60 grade) during storage at ambient temperature.


Keywords: Physiological loss in weight, compactness of head (grade), colourchange (grade).
