PROJECTS

  1. Preharvest Application of Nutrients on Quality and Storability of Litchi cv. Bombai

    Funded by: Ministry of Science and Technology, Bangladesh

    Position: Project Director

    Description: The experiment was carried out at Hajee Mohammad Danesh Science and technology University, Dinajpur-5200 Bangladesh during 2020-2021. The objective of this experiment was to see the effect of nutrients viz., urea (1%), calcium chloride (1%), borax (1%), and their combinations on fruit quality and shelf life of litchi cv. Bombai. The experiment was laid out in randomized block design with 7 treatments and 3 replications. Two spray of each treatment was applied during last week of May to June (at 20 days interval). The results indicated that all the treatments significantly improved quality parameters of litchi fruits as compared to control. In terms of physico-chemical characters fruit weight (20.30g), fruit volume (20m ml) and pulp percent (17.14) were found maximum with minimum stone per cent (11.09) with application of urea 1% + borax 1%+ calcium chloride 1%. Maximum TSS (19.62oBrix), TSS/acidity ratio (24.57), maximum ascorbic acid (45.19 mg/100 g pulp) and minimum acidity (0.80%) were reported with the application of T6 (Urea 1% + borax 1%+ calcium chloride 1%) treatments whereas fruits treated with urea 1% + borax 1% gave maximum total sugars (26.64%) and reducing sugars (19.19%) as compared to control. In case of storage characters, application of Urea 1% + borax 1%+ calcium chloride 1% resulted in minimum physiological loss in weight (6.11%), (8.41) and (10.65) during 2days ,4days and 6 days respectively.
