Studies directed towards prolonging the life of the cut flower in the Mediterranean varieties of Dianthus caryophyllus

, : Studies directed towards prolonging the life of the cut flower in the Mediterranean varieties of Dianthus caryophyllus. Acta Horticulturae 1974; (43, II): 307-318

Cut flowers of the carnation cvs Mireia and Lima were placed in solutions containing 8-hydroxyquinoline sulphate (8-HQS), sucrose, Cupferron, mandelic acid, Everbloom and Cornell solution at various rates. Cupferron and mandelic acid, which act as metal-complexing agents, had the same beneficial effects on the fresh weight, diameter, petal growth and vase life of flowers as did 8-HQS, also a complexing agent.

Ninety-eight soldiers sustaining 106 different cold injuries during the winters of 1959-1960 and 1960-1961, while stationed in Alaska, were compared to 154 Army controls as to personal characteristics and habits. It was shown that heavy smoking, e...
