Abstract


An experiment was conducted to study the effect of potassium sulphate (0.5%, 1%and 1.5%) sprayed at fruit set and one month after fruit set. Various concentration of potassium sulphate was applied through spray and fruits were harvested after maturity. Uniform size fruits were packed in card board boxes without paper lining and cushioning material and stored at room temperature. Physiological loss in weight increased with increase in storage period in all the treatments up to 8th days. Maximum PLW(Physiological loss in weight) was observed in control fruits after 8th day of storage and minimum PLW was observed in fruits sprayed with 1 per cent potassium sulphate at one month after fruit set.
