Effect of different storage condition and packing materials on the shelf life of five cauliflower cultivars

Effect of different storage condition and packing materials on the shelf life of five cauliflower cultivars

Haryana Journal of Horticultural Sciences 29(1/2): 131-132

Five cauliflower cultivars (PSB-1, PSBK-1, KT-1, KT-25 and Snow Ball-16) were evaluated for shelf life under different storage conditions (room temperature and zero-energy chamber) and using different packaging materials (gunny or polyethylene bags). Physiological loss in weight (PLW) increased with increasing storage duration in all treatments. Maximum PLW (14.9%) was observed in PSB-1 after 6 days of storage, while minimum (7.3%) was in KT-1 after 6 days of storage.
