A Guide for the Postharvest Handling of Fresh Flowers to Extend Their Useful Life


PART III: Postharvest Handling of Fresh Flowers


In this third and final segment of our series on the postharvest handling of fresh flowers and foliages, we will discuss (1) ethylene and (2) the evaluation of new products. The latter section also includes a sample ex periment that can serve as a guide for making your own evaluations of new products in the future, rather than depending wholly upon testimonials or the claims of the manufacturers.
