Author(s): Ankush Kumar, Navdeep Gandhi and Diksha Tinna
Abstract: An experiment was conducted at Agriculture Lab, Department of Agriculture, D.A.V College, Abohar, Punjab during academic year 2018-19 to study the effect of different packaging material under different temperature conditions on physical properties and shelf life of Rose and Plumeria flower. The different packaging material such as aluminium foil container, transparent zip-pouch polythene and open as control were used for experiment. The flowers were kept at room temperature and under refrigerated conditions. The effect of different packaging under different temperature conditions on change in weight and size of flowers were observed. Minimum weight loss was observed in flowers packed in polythene pouch at room temperature followed by flowers kept without any covering under refrigerated conditions. Minimum reduction in size was observed in polythene pouch packed flowers stored under refrigerated conditions followed by aluminium foil packed flowers stored at room temperature.
