Response of preharvest foliar spray of micronutrients on physiological loss in fruit weight (PLW), fruit volume, organoleptic and shelf life of mango (Mangifera indica L.) cv. Langra at ambient storage conditions

Author(s): Rashmi Panwar, CP Singh
Abstract: The investigation was carried out at the Horticultural Research Centre, Patharchatta of the G.B. Pant University of Agriculture and Technology, Pantnagar (U.S. Nagar), Uttarakhand to study the effect of preharvest foliar spray of micronutrients on physiological loss in fruit weight, fruit volume, organoleptic and shelf life of mango cv. Langra. Under ambient storage conditions, preharvest foliar spray of boron, zinc, iron and copper gave minimum physiological loss in fruit weight. Organoleptic was found maximum mostly with the combination of 2, 3 or 4 micronutrients at room temperature conditions. Application of all the four micronutrients was found effective to get more shelf life of fruits.
