Abstract:

An experiment was carried out to study the effect of different packing and storage conditions on vase life of cut carnation cv. Kiro. The flowers packed in polypropylene at 5°C cold storage under wet condition recorded significantly highest total chlorophyll content of leaf (78.98 SPAD unit), highest total chlorophyll content of calyx (38.00 SPAD unit) and lowest ethylene estimation (0.27 ppm/h) which have extended the vase life period of carnation flower cv. Kiro.


Keywords: Carnation, Packing, Storage conditions, Chlorophyll content and ethylene estimation
