Effects of ancymidol on vase behaviour of cut tulips

, : Effects of ancymidol on vase behaviour of cut tulips. Acta Horticulturae (41): 97-102

Pre-harvest spraying with ancymidol reduced post-harvest elongation of the uppermost stem internode in tulip flowers, and retarded stem bending and changes in the flower colour during vase life. Concentrations of 50, 100 and 200 p.p.m. had similar effects, retardation being more marked the later treatment was applied before cutting.

A soil drench at 0.67 mg/15-cm pot (4 bulbs) was as effective as 3.33 mg in retarding scape growth. Ancy...
