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 the highest water uptake (g flower-1), whereas significantly the modest transpirational loss of water (g flower-1) resulting in increased water balance (g flower-1) and highest fresh weight change (g flower-1) has been recorded by flowers packed in polypropylene at 5°C cold storage under wet condition which have extended the vase life period of carnation flower cv. Kiro.


Keywords: Carnation, Cold storage, Water uptake, Transpirational loss of water, Water balance and fresh weight change
