Guava plants of cultivar Sardar were treated with four concentrations of GA 3 (30,60,90,120 ppm), CCC (300,600,900,1200 ppm) and NAA (20,40,60, 80ppm) along with a control. The fruits were kept in perforated poly bags and stored at room temperature. GA 3 treated fruits stored at ambient temperature expressed relatively slower senescence as compared to control. The fruit size and specific gravity reduced with the advancements of storage. All the other quality parameters viz. TSS, acidity and… Expand
