The premise of scientific and technical experiments was to evaluate the behaviour during storage of the 2 cultivars of plums ('Stanley' and 'Anna Spath'). Fruits were held after the harvest period of about 7-45 days, depending on cultivar, storage spaces, storage of the resort, where the experiments were subsequently taken and kept in cold conditions (t = 3- 5°C; UR-95%) over a period of 30 days in cold storage of Belciugatele Teaching Station, located inside of Moara Domneasc[ farm. After removal from storage were made determinations regarding: the recorded quantity and quality of the losses of fruit during storage; the chemical evolution of the main components of plums during storage; The drip irrigation was started from March 20, water was given 4 hours per day. The amount of water needed are between 300 and 700 m3/ha. Among the tested cultivars, Anna Spath performed best, which was ranked on the first place with 2,26 % total loss without loss by spoilage.
