It was observed that wet gunny bag treatment also resulted in the best physical appearance, acceptability, reduced weight loss and thereby highest economic return for brinjal at four days after storage. Considering all the attributes, perforated polythene bag treatment was also found to be a suggestive treatment for better storage.
