Abstract:
The present investigation was undertaken to study the management of post-harvest diseases and fruit fly of mango using hot water treatment. For this purpose, the mango cultivars Alphanso, Totapuri, Kesar, Sonpari and Langra fruits were harvested at proper stage of maturity and given hot water treatment. The mango fruits were then packed in corrugated fibre board box and then stored in room temperature. It was observed that among various treatments, hot water dip at 50 °C for 20 min, hot water dip at 48 °C for 60 min and hot water dip at 52 °C for 10 min found effective for management of post harvest diseases and fruit fly in mango. The untreated (control) fruits were found to have infected with stem end rot, anthracnose and fruit fly.
