Abstract:
The pre-harvest study was conducted in an experimental orchard and post-harvest laboratory of the department of Horticulture during 2013–14 with a view to investigate the effect of chemicals and pesticide application on ripening of mango under ambient condition. The maximum delay in ripening was observed with 200ppm Silver nitrate + 0.1% Carbendazim (3.34 days) followed by Silver nitrate (100ppm) + Carbendazim (0.1%). The findings of the present study also reflected maximum delay in ripening with pre-harvest application of silver nitrate. However, post-harvest quality of fruits declined with the treatment. The delay in ripening caused by Silver nitrate may be an important factor for poor fruit quality.
