Abstract:
It is well documented in the literature that pre and post harvest applications of growth retardants and various chemicals extend the shelf life of many fruits by maintaining firmness and minimizing the rate of respiration, protein breakdown and disease incidence. This review provides a comprehensive overview of the basic and applied aspects of growth retardants and other chemicals used in regulation of fruit ripening and senescence. The latter part of the review deals with their current and potential uses on various tropical and sub-tropical fruit crops.
