The shelf life of guava psidium guajava cultivar sardar fruits with polythene packaging and chemical treatments



The shelf life of guava psidium guajava cultivar sardar fruits with polythene packaging and chemical treatments



Journal of Maharashtra Agricultural Universities 9(2): 185-188



The polythene packaging was highly effective in checking weight loss (2.21-2.3% vs. 33.18% with no polythene) and maintaining turgidity and glossiness. Naphthaleneacetic acid (NAA) at 150 and N6-benzyladenine (BA) at 15 ppm were optimum and effective in arresting ripening process. The treatment, 150 ppm NAA for 5 min dip + 150 gauge polythrene with 0.05% vents was best for prolonging the shelf-life of Sardar [L-49]guava fruits.
