Abstract:

Mango (Mangifera indica L.) is one of the most luscious fruit of world, which occupies a prime position in the international fruit processing industry of the world. It is one of the most choicest and popular fruit among the people and designated as the ‘king of fruits’ (Sawke et al., 15). 7 years old mango cv. Kesar garden planted at a spacing of 7.5 m x 7.5 m was selected for the experiment. Spraying was carried out once with Taiwan sprayer at 30 days before harvest of fruits. Initial fruit weight (g), fruit weight at 5, 10 and 15 days after harvest (DAH) was found to be non-significant among various treatments. Physiological loss of weight was significantly low in 2% K2SO4 at 5 (3.97%), 10 (11.11%) and 15 (16.15%) DAH. 4% CaCl2.6H2O spray recorded lowest anthracnose infestation of 9.87% at 10 DAH, 2% CaCl2.6H2O and 2% K2SO4 sprays recorded lowest anthracnose infestation of 10.08% at 15 DAH and 2% CaCl2.6H2O recorded lowest anthracnose infestation of 10.23% at 20 DAH. In terms of qualitative characters, significantly highest total soluble sugars (oB) of 21.27, total sugars percentage of 15.32, reducing sugars percentage of 3.96 and non-reducing sugars percentage of 11.36 was recorded in 2% K2SO4 spray. Significantly low titrable acidity percentage of 0.25% and significantly high ascorbic acid content of 35.55 mg/100 g was recorded in 2% K2SO4 spray.
