ABSTRACT We studied the effect of CO 2 and gibberellic acid (GA 3 ) on postharvest senescence of parsley ( Petroselinum crispum Mill.) and on ethylene induced senescence. GA 3 or CO 2 treatment retarded, with a similar efficiency, chlorophyll and protein degradation, amino acids accumulation and respiration rate. Treatment with GA 3 and CO 2 together resulted in an additive senescence retarding effect. The promoting effect of ethylene on senescence could be retarded with either CO 2 or GA 3 . Thus, GA 3 and CO 2 could provide an effective means for maintaining fresh produce quality in parsley.
