|Abstract:||The investigation entitled “Studies on effect of pre-harvest bunch treatment and bagging on yield and post harvest quality of banana” was undertaken in a farmer’s field (Kadur Tq.) and laboratory analyses were done at K.R.C. College of Horticulture, Arabhavi, Belgaum District of Karnataka during 2014-2016. The study was carried out for two consecutive years (2014 and 2015) on Grand Naine and Ney Poovan. The treatments involved pre-harvest bunch spraying of potassium silicate (at monthly intervals after the emergence of inflorescence) at different concentrations (2ml/l, 4ml/l and 6ml/l) with or without bagging (Experiment 1 and 2) as well as application of 2, 4- D (20 ppm) and use of urea, ammonium sulphate and suplhate of potash for bunch feeding with or without bagging (Experiment 3 and 4) on banana var. Grand Naine and cv. Ney Poovan. The bunches sprayed with potassium silicate sprays at 6 ml/l + bagging treatment significantly improved bunch weight, total number of fruits per bunch and physical quality (mature fruit weight, fruit length, fruit diameter, ripe fruit weight and pulp weight) over control. Treatment also recorded the significantly minimum cumulative PLW, respiration rate and maximum shelf life of 12.83 days in var. Grand Naine and 7.50 days in case of cv. Ney Poovan. The TSS, sugars, sugar-acid ratio and starch content were found maximum. Both Grand Naine and Ney Poovan fruits in this treatment had better colour values (maximum L*,a*,b*,c*). The treated fruits were also found organoleptically superior. Bunches sprayed with 20 ppm of 2, 4 D (Experiment 3 and 4) recorded better bunch weight, fruit weight, length, diameter and pulp weight in Grand Naine and Ney Poovan fruits. The TSS, sugars, sugar-acid ratio, starch and colour values (L*, a*, b*, c*) were better in fruits fed with nitrogen source+potassium source dissolved in slurry mixture+bagging. Bunch feeding + bagging also recorded minimum respiration rate and maximum shelf life in both Grand Naine and Ney Poovan fruits.|
