Author(s):

Abstract:
The vase life of gerbera varieties (Szogun, Salsa, Kormoran and Feliks) under different growing conditions (polyhouse, insect proof net house, shade net house and open field)” was studied at Department of Horticulture, CCS Haryana Agricultural University, Hisar during the year 2019-2020. The results showed that both growing conditions and varieties have significant effect on almost all the post-harvest parameters including vase life. The polyhouse grown Szogun flowers had more water uptake (199.65 ml) maximum days taken to flower drooping (13.81 days), days taken for petal discoloration (8.50 days), days taken for petal shrivelling (10.43 days) and vase life (10.25 days). While, among chemicals, cut flower placed in 8-HQC 200 ppm uptake more water (221.51 ml), maximum days taken to flower drooping (15.47 days), days taken for petal discoloration (9.06 days), days taken for petal shrivelling (12.50 days) and vase life (11.25 days).
