Abstract: Carnation is one of the important commercial cut flower crops of the world. Standardization of post-harvest handling techniques for carnation was carried out. Results of the experiment on determination of optimum harvest stage revealed that maximum vase life of 32.8 days was obtained at tight bud stage in cv. Michelle Lek Miche and vase life of 23 days was obtained with tight bud and cross bud stage in cv. Lek Petra. Pulsing solution of 10% sucrose + 100 ppm silver thiosulfate improved post-harvest quality of carnation cut at cross bud stage. Among different post-harvest practices, maximum vase life of 23 days was obtained with solution of 2% sucrose + 50 ppm of kinetin.
