Abstract

Onion bulbs, the tops of which had been sprayed before harvest with 200, 400 and 600 p.p.m. of maleic hydrazide solution, together with a control, were stored at two temperature ranges, viz. 59-87o F, R.H. 45-78% ; and 32-35o F, R.H. 80-90% . A noteworthy feature brought out by the data on physiological losses in weight, rooting, sprouting and respiration rates was that maleic hydrazide produces more pronounced inhibitory effects at the higher temperature range than at the lower one. Pre-harvest foliage sprays of maleic hydrazide reduced the wastage due to fungus diseases in onion bulbs stored at both the temperature ranges investigated, although the effect was greater in the lower range.
