Abstract:
An investigation was conducted at agriculture Lab, Department of Agriculture, D.A.V College, Abohar, Punjab during academic year 2018 to study the effect of different types of wrapping material on quality and shelf life of Tomato. The different packaging material were polythene bags, newspaper sheet, aluminium foil and open air as a control were used for experiment. The fruits were kept in refrigeration. The effect of different packaging on change in physiological loss in water, specific gravity, spoilage percentage, TSS and Titrable acidity was observed. The different treatments showed variation in physiological and physical characters. Out of these four treatments aluminium foil showed best results as compared to other treatments. The obtained results indicated that less decrease in physiological loss in weight, specific gravity, spoilage percentage, TSS and titrable acidity were recorded in fruits covering with aluminium foil and maximum decrease in physiological loss in weight, specific gravity, spoilage percentage, TSS and titrable acidity were recorded in control after 23 days of storage.
