Abstract:

The present investigation dealt with the effect of temperature and duration of pulsing with silver thiosulphate (STS) on the peroxidative changes of cut rose petals during vase life period. From the investigation it was proved that flowers pulsed with 0.4mM STS at 10oC for a short period of 8 hours significantly decreased the catalase and peroxidase activities thereby extending the shelf life of cut roses. The enhanced longevity of cut roses was due to suppressing the formation of peroxides and free radicals in the plant tissue. A delay in the formation of peroxides and free radicals ultimately led to membrane integrity thereby increased vase life of cut roses.
