Abstract:

An experiment was conducted to study the effect of temperature and different packaging materials on post-harvest life of gladiolus spike at Post-harvest Laboratory, Department of Horticulture, Institute of Agricultural Sciences, Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi, during the year 2017. Experiment was laid out in Completely Randomized Design with three replications. The results revealed that gladiolus spike stored at 16ºC (cool chamber condition) and 22 ± 2ºC (ambient condition) failed to exert any significant effect on days to open of third and fifth floret, percentage of opened florets, diameter of fifth floret and length of fifth floret. Maximum diameter, days to withering of first and third florets, weight of spike at third, sixth and ninth day and shelf life was recorded with cellophane paper packaging. There was no any significant difference between ambient (22 ± 2ºC) and cool chamber condition (16ºC) on weight of spike at third, sixth and ninth day, days to withering of first and third floret and shelf life of spike. Whereas, maximum length of first floret was observed with spike packed in news paper. Spikes stored in cool chamber resulted in maximum days to withering of fifth floret.
