The effect of growing temperature on keeping quality of cut roses


, : The effect of growing temperature on keeping quality of cut roses. Acta Horticulturae (41): 77-92

The keeping quality of cut flowers of the cvs Zorina, Garnette and Baccara diminished as the growing temperature decreased. The best longevity was obtained at a growing temperature of 21-24 deg C. A reduction in temperature to 12-15 deg during the last 3 weeks before the flowers were cut greatly reduced the vase life. The water uptake of the cut flowers was favoured by a high growing temperature. Flowers grown at 24 deg absorbed about twice as much water as flowers grown at 12 deg.

To elucidate the biochemical mechanism by which the sympathomimetic agent clenbuterol promotes skeletal muscle growth, we have determined the activity of a range of proteolytic enzyme types (acid, neutral and alkaline proteinases and peptidases),...
