Abstract

To study the effect different types of packaging materials on bio-chemical of tomato cv. Heemsohna. An experiment was conducted in Horticulture Lab at School of Agricultural Sciences & Technology, RIMT University, Mandi Gobindgarh, Punjab, India during the year 2020. The experiment was laid out in completely randomized block design along with three replications. The results revealed that out of the seven treatments, the treatment T4 (Black Polythene) showed best result as compared to other treatments except treatment T3 (Yellow Polythene) were recorded highest fruit pH. Thus, it can be concluded that packaging of tomato fruits in polyethylene bags resulted in longer shelf life and improved quality of the produce followed by packaging in black polythene bags.

Keywords: Packaging material, black polythene, yellow polythene, tomato and Heemsohna.
