A study on impact of drying techniques among carnation flower

Veena S Jadhav and Sanjana N Joshi
The beauty of flowers is the natural gift of god to human being. Flowers offered a special place in every occasion, due to their variety of colour and their fragrance which makes the surrounding air pleasant to breathe. In the present study three different colours Carnation (Red, pink and White) were selected. The flowers were dried in different drying techniques such as air drying, desiccant (silica gel and mixture (1:1) of borax and sand) drying and microwave oven drying (after embedding flowers in silica gel) techniques and evaluated ANOVA with three replications. With regard to time taken for drying microwave drying technique took less time compared to other techniques. The fresh and dry weight of carnation flower was significantly influenced by flower colours. Significant differences were observed due to different colours and apperance of carnation flower and method of drying techniques used.
