Carbohydrate changes in tulip bulbs during storage and forcing


, : Carbohydrate changes in tulip bulbs during storage and forcing. Acta Horticulturae (47): 353-363

Bulbs of the tulip Apeldoorn in which flower differentiation had reached stage G were stored at 9 or 18 deg C for 6 weeks. Although the alcohol-insoluble solids and starch contents, which were closely correlated, decreased in bulbs stored at 9 deg but increased at 18 deg , the rate of decline of these constituents was little influenced by the temperature after planting.
