Abstract: An experiment entitled, “Studies on packaging and storage behaviour of champaca (Michelia champaca Linn.)” was conducted at the Department of PHM of fruit, vegetable and flower crops, PGI-PHTM, Killa-Roha during the year2022-23. The experiment was laid out in Factorial Completely Randomized Block Design (FCRD) comprising six treatment combinations of different chemicals along with control viz., Sodium Benzoate (100 ppm and 150 ppm), Boric Acid (1 and 2 percent) and Ascorbic Acid (100 ppm and 150 ppm) and were packed in three different types of packaging material viz., LDPE bags, polypropylene bags, stand up pouches and control were stored in refrigerator at 7 ℃. The quality of the champaca flower could be improved by treating with different chemical at different concentration and packed in various packaging material. From the present investigation, it was observed that the physical parameter such as L* and b* value for colour exhibited an decreasing trend while increasing trend was observed in a* value for colour of the champaca flower irrespective of treatments during storage. From the results of present studies, it can be concluded that the champaca flowers treated with 2 percent boric acid could be stored up to 7 days at low temperature (7± 2 ℃) conditions, when packed in LDPE bags.
