- KurzbeschreibungFloriculture has undergone rapid strides in recent years because of the increasing economic importance of cut flowers. Traded worldwide, cut flowers have very high international demand. But being ephemeral, cut flowers soon senesce and lose value, if not properly handled. This book gives an insight into the process of senescence of cut flowers, the factors affecting it and the methods of delaying it. One separate chapter deals with the Physiology of Senescence of Cut Flowers, giving insight into the biochemical, biophysical, physiological and molecular aspects of senescence. Another chapter addresses the role of plant growth regulators, especially ethylene, in the senescence of Cut Flowers. The effect of exogenous application of PGR's or their antagonists is also discussed. Chapter 4 details the role of various factors on the Postharvest Performance of Cut Flowers. Last chapter gives the exhaustive description of the proper methods and techniques of Postharvest Handling of Cut Flowers, so as to retain their quality and enhance their vase life and value. The book will serve as a reference book for Floriculture and Postharvest Technology students, the florists and cut flower growers.
