Abstract

India is the world’s second largest producer of fruits and vegetables. Huge quantities of lignocellulosic biomass are produced every year during cultivation, harvesting, processing and consumption of agricultural products. Fruits after consumption leave a peel which is a nuisance to the environment as a solid waste. In this article, commonly available large volume-fruit peels. This project emphasizes on using the waste generated from fruits. Fruit peels of banana, sweet lime, papaya and pineapple were used. The fruit peels were air dried and powdered. A formulation of the fruit peel was made to be used as a natural fertilizer. The peel powder was mixed with soil in a 1:1 ration individually. The physical and chemical characteristics of the peel powder mixed soils were determined. Surface sterilized moong seed were inoculated and their growth was checked for a week. The fruit peel extract was used to check the growth on the moong seeds in vitro for a week. The seeds were grown MS media supplemented with the fruit peel extract. The grown plantlets were checked for root length, shoot length, no of leaves, protein content and carbohydrate content. In vitro propagation of shoots was used to test the utilization of fruit peel extract as a natural growth enhancer. Shoots were grown on fruit peel formulated media without and with growth hormones.
