Abstract:

An investigation was carried out at Floriculture Research Station, Rajendranagar, Sri Konda Laxman Telangana State Horticultural University, Mulugu (V & M), Siddipet Dist., Telangana State during the period of 2017-18 and 2018-19 to determine the effect of postharvest treatments on storage and quality of carrot at ambient temperature. The study was conducted with Hot water at 500C dipping for one minute, H2O2 1 per cent for one minute dipping, NaOCl2 150 ppm dipping for one minute, CaOCl 150 ppm dipping for one minute, CaCl2 3 per cent dipping for five minutes. The experiment was laid out in CRD with three replications. All the parameters in terms of vitamin C, TSS, Carotene, reducing sugars, total sugars were significantly differed among storage and quality of carrot. The minimum per cent of physiological loss in weight (10.37 %), firmness (9.48 kg/cm2) and maximum shelf life (8.70) was recorded in T5 (CaCl2). minimum per cent of decay (27.43 %) and maximum β-carotene content (2.62 mg/100g), ascorbic acid content (2.65 mg/100g), TSS content (12.69 °Brix), reducing sugars (1.25 mg/100g), total sugars (4.58 mg/100g) was recorded in T1 (hot water treatment).
