Abstract

The present investigation on the “Influence of preservative chemicals and growth regulators on the post harvest physical parameters of gladiolus (Gladiolus grandiflorus L.) cv. American Beauty” was carried out in the Department of Horticulture, Faculty of Agriculture, Annamalai University, Annamalainagar. The experiment was conducted in a Completely Randomized Design with 13 treatments in three replications. The treatments consisted of two preservative chemicals viz., 8-hydroxy quinoline sulphate @ 150, 300, 450 ppm and silver nitrate @ 25, 50, 75 ppm along with benzyl adenine and gibberellic acid 20, 40 and 60 ppm and 10, 25 and 40 ppm respectively and a control (distilled water) was maintained. The results of the experiment revealed that the best treatment was T2 (8-HQS 300 ppm + 4 % sucrose + BA 40 ppm) in terms of all the physical parameters viz., days taken for the basal floret to open in vase, longevity of florets, ornamental value and vase life. From the above results it has been concluded that the use of vase solution containing 8 HQS 300 ppm + sucrose 4 per cent + BA 40 ppm was found better for extending the vase life and maintaining quality of gladiolus cv. American Beauty.
