Abstract: The present study was undertaken at Post Harvest Laboratory, Department of Fruit Science and Horticulture Technology, OUAT, BBSR during 2015-16 and 2016-17 to envisage the effect of different post harvest treatments on quality of banana cv. Grand Naine, where fruits were subjected to ten treatments with different concentration of GA3, CaCl2, their combination and Control (without any treatment) and replicated thrice. Fruits were treated in different concentration of chemicals/growth regulator. Among the treatments, post-harvest dipping of fruits in 150 ppm GA3 significantly increased titrable acidity, ascorbic acid content and storage life of fruits (22.04 days in plant crop & 22.06 days in ratoon crop). While the parameters like TSS (20.120Brix in plant crop and 20.160Brix in ratoon crop), total sugars (17.42% in plant crop, 17.96% in ratoon crop), were observed minimum in the same treatment after 21st day of storage.
