Cite article:- Waskar D.P., Dhemre J.K. (2024). EFFECT OF PRECOOLING ON EXTENDING THE POSTHARVEST LIFE OF KESAR MANGO FRUITS. Indian Journal of Agricultural Research. 39(1): 42 . 46. doi: .
An investigation was undertaken to study the effect of precooling on extending the postharvest life of Kesar mago fruits. For this purpose, fully matured export quality kesar mango fruits were subjected to treatments of waxol (6%), waxol (6%) coupled with carbendazim (0.1%) and captan (0.2%). One lot of these treated and untreated (control) fruits were kept for storage at room temperature (24.18–30.57°C with 47.50–74.00% RH), second lot was precooled at 10°C temperature for 12 h and the third lot was unprecooled and both the lots were stored in the cool storage (10°C temp. with 90–95% RH). Results indicated that the kesar mango fruits treated with waxol (6%) coupled with carbendazim (0.1%) and precooled at 10°C temp. for 12 h and then stored in cool storage recorded the maximum shelf life of 50 days compared to unprecooled ones which recorded the shelf life of 46 days. Fruits under control recorded the minimum shelf life of 20 days.
