Abstract:
The GA3 and Chitosan Coated Banana were evaluated for their physico-chemical properties during storage. Treatments were T0: Control, T1: Chitosan 1%, T2: Chitosan 1.5%, T3: Chitosan 2%, T4: Chitosan 2.5%, T5: GA3 100 ppm, T6: GA3 150 ppm, T7: GA3 200 ppm and T8: GA3 250 ppm. On the basis of evaluation of GA3 and Chitosan coated banana, T7 found maximum (0.051g) mean fruit weight, (6.02%) loss in weight, (13.367 0Brix) TSS, (1.373 mg/100g) Vitamin C, (76.507%) Moisture and minimum (0.197%) Acidity, where as maximum (7.00 days) green life, (17.70%) Total sugar was found in T8 and maximum (15.33 days) yellow life was found in T6 after 18 days of coatings whereas minimum was found with T0 (Control) in all the parameters on 9th day of coatings, In terms of Economics Maximum Net income (Rs. 46.75) and benefit cost ratio (1.95:1) was recorded in T8 followed by T7 with (39.75 Rs. Net Return and 1.92:1 Benefit Cost Ratio) and the minimum (Net Return – Rs. 1.25 and Benefit cost ratio – 1.01:1) was found in T3. T7 was found significantly superior to all other treatments in most of the parameters followed by T8 GA3 and Chitosan coated Banana during storage.
