Effect of Stage of Preharvest Bagging with Skirting Bags on Fruit Quality of Alphonso Mango
The research trial was conducted at Mango Research Sub-Centre, Rameshwar, Deogad to study the effect of stage of preharvest bagging with skirting bags on quality of Alphonso mango. The bagging with skirting bags (PP nonwoven fabric) was done at marble stage and retained the bags upto 45, 60, 75 days and at egg stage and retained upto 45, 60 days and at harvest. The maximum fruit weight (230.67 g), lowest spotted fruits (1.33%), lowest occurrence of spongy tissue (1.67%) were also recorded in treatment T3-(Bagging at marble stage and removing bags at 75 days after bagging). The lowest incidence of stem end rot disease was in the fruits of T6 (1.00%) which was at par with T3 (1.67%). The highest ascorbic acid content (55.00 mg/100g), highest reducing and total sugars (2.28% and 6.78%, respectively) were also found in T3 treatment. The physiological loss in weight was lowest (14.67%) in fruits of T3 treatment.
