Abstract

Production and quality of cut foliage in leather leaf fern, is influenced by the growing medium and nutrients. A study was conducted to evaluate the influence of cocopeat based substrates and nutrient doses on production and quality of leather leaf fern. Four substrate combinations along with four...

Abstract

The phytohormone ethylene is known to play a crucial role in promoting petal senescence in cut carnation flowers. In most previous studies in carnation, petal senescence was analyzed in cut flowers, and knowledge of petal senescence in intact flowers is limited. In this study, we compared changes...

Abstract

Extending the vase life of cut dahlia 'Kokucho' flowers through enhanced activities of acid invertases (cell wall, CWIN and vacuolar, VIN) on flower opening and senescence after harvest was investigated. The activities of CWIN and VIN were very low in the outer petals at the tight bud stage (stage...

Abstract

The postharvest longevity and quality of cut flowers are affected by floral senescence and petal abscission, which primarily result from both ethylene production in the floral organs (such as the petals and gynoecium) and microbial growth in the xylem vessels in ethylene-sensitive flowers, while...

Abstract

This study was designed to evaluate the modifications of pectin and hemicellulose polysaccharides, as well as their putative effects, during the stem bending of fresh-cut gerbera flowers. Flowers bend in the region 6-12 cm below the capitulum starting after 6 days, and have an average vase life of...

AbstractFull Text

The conservation of cut flower stems aims to prolong durability, maintain quality and reduce losses after harvest, providing a longer period of useful life and commercialization. Thus, the objective of this work was to evaluate the quality and durability in postharvest of fresh safflower flower...

Abstract

Flowering phenology is an important feature for producers to establish planting time and time of harvest. Because each cultivar reacts different in similar growth conditions, due to their complex genetic inheritance, studies may initiate to evaluate their performance. Cultivars 'Aladin', 'Anita',...

Abstract

The investigations were carried out at Ludhiana, Punjab during the year 2018-19 to evaluate the effect of different concentrations of floral preservatives as holding solutions and to standardize the optimum concentration to increase the post-harvest keeping quality of chrysanthemum cut stems cv....

Abstract

Temperature plays a crucial role in growth rate and development of a plant. Low temperature damages plant metabolic processes. The poly tunnel is used to mitigate low temperature stress for quality production of gladiolus. The Randomized complete block design with two factors factorial was used to...

Abstract

The main function of floral scent is to attract and guide pollinators, but it is also an important character in the ornamental plant industry. Several studies have considered the chemical evaluation of floral scent during vase life, but only a few have considered sensorial analysis of this...
