Bagasse packaging antagonising fungi with tumeric extract for green cos lettuce cultivation
MetadataShow full item record
The purpose of this research was to develop bagasse packaging antagonizing fungi with turmeric extract for Green Cos Lettuce cultivation. The bagasse package would incorporated with fungistatic turmeric extract, instead of using chemicals, at concentrations 0 5,000 10,000 15,000 and 20,000 ppm. The packaging characteristics, efficiency of turmeric extract, and the growth of Green Cos Lettuce determined into the percentage of germination, height measurement, fungi, contamination characteristic were tested under the presence and absent antifungal bagasse The plant seedling spreading onto the surface, of the packaging with turmeric extracts could be excelled for -their growth, with the induction of germination rate of 92-97 percentages. Turmeric extracts at concentrations of 15,000 and 20,000 ppm had also expel the emergence of Penicillum sp. inhibit Rhizopus sp., and slow down Colletotrichum sp. Moreover, the turmeric extract caused packaging decaying by itself slowly, possibly helping in common airborne mold prevention. This green safe material showed the respectably effective for Green Cos Lettuce seedling especially for the fungal pathogen contamination during implantations. This research based on using natural extracts and natural fibers from agricultural waste is thus being ecofriendly nonchemical application of packaging product with easily digested for decent, consumers who love their health and care environment.
