Abstract

As the sodium salt of alpha-naphthalene acetic acid (sodium naphthyl acetate - SNA) was found to be as effective as the methyl ester of alpha-naphthalene acetic acid (MENA) for the control of sprouting of potatoes during storage at ambient conditions (22-35 degree C, RH 50-80%), parameters affecting efficacy of SNA were worked out. To control sprouting, potates were dipped in 10-10 000 p.p.m. solutions of SNA for 1-30 min. The sprouting decreased with increase in concn., but the increasing duration of treatment had no additional inhibitory effect. Sprouting was min. when tubers were treated on the 3rd day of harvest. Addition of 1000 p.p.m. Benlate to the treatment solution reduced the spoilage. Several batches of potatoes were treated with the same lot of SNA solution without causing any decrease in its concn. or the efficacy of the treatment, which makes its use more economical in controlling potato sprouting than MENA.
