Abstract:
This research was carried out to determine the effects of storage conditions of roots on seed yield and quality in purple carrots. For this purpose, purple carrot roots for seed were stored in refrigerated (+4C) and non-refrigerated stores in soil + sawdust, soil free + sawdust and perforated PE bags for 16 weeks between 2015 and 2016. During the storage period, sprouting, rooting, shriveling and decay rate were determined. After storage, seed yield characteristics were determined from roots planted on field. As a result of the research, the increase of the storage period caused an increase in the rate of rooting, sprouting and decay. The rate of sprouting and rooting increased with the PE bag in refrigerated storage (+4C) 56.67%, with the soil free + sawdust 72,50% and the soil + sawdust 90,84% in non-refrigerated storage. Seed yields of roots taken from refrigerated and non-refrigerated storage were between 36.74 and 21.02 g plant‑1, respectively. In terms of packaging types, better results were obtained for both storage conditions, in the soil free + sawdust (22.20 and 60.12 g plant‑1).
