The effect of pre-harvest conditions on the quality of cut tulips

, : The effect of pre-harvest conditions on the quality of cut tulips. Acta Horticulturae (41): 69-76

Certain disorders of cut tulip flowers, including shortened stems, flower bud-blast, greening and "topple" (linked with Ca deficiency), can be regarded partly as after-effects and partly direct effects of environmental conditions during bulb storage, transport and growth during forcing. The major factors responsible for developmental aberrations were shown to be incorrrect storage temperatures and the presence of ethylene in stores and greenhouses.
