Author(s): V. Sudha Vani and k. Ravi Kumar
Abstract: Pre harvest spray of growth regulators on the quality and shelf life of baby corn was studied. All the growth regulators extended shelf life for 2 days at room temperature. Among the growth regulators tried, pre-harvest spray of GA3 40 ppm followed by cycocel 1000 ppm was proved to be promising in reducing the PLW (Physiological Loss in weight), spoilage per cent, better retention of TSS, reducing sugars, titrable acidity, ascorbic acid and crude protein content....
