Role of Flower Preservative Solutions During Postharvest of Hydrangea macrophylla cv. Bela

  Hydrangea macrophylla (hydrangea) is widely used as an ornamental plant and cut flower due to its inflorescence, which is composed of colored bracts. As cut flowers, hydrangeas show a postharvest life of up to 1 month at 2 °C, but little is known about their postharvest life during air...

Increasing the Shelf Life of Post-harvest Table Grapes (Vitis vinífera cv. Thompson Seedless) Using Different Packaging Material with Copper Nanoparticles to Change the Atmosphere

   An effective way to control post-harvest rotting of table grapes is the use of sulfur dioxide (SO2 ). However, under certain conditions, the use of SO2 can cause significant loss, mainly associated with bleaching of the berries. Therefore, it is believed that the use of bags with and...

Salicylate Compounds and 1-Methylcyclopropene on Postharvest of 'Vega' Cut Rose

  Cut roses are characterized as highly perishable products due to the intense metabolism during postharvest, mainly the rise in respiratory activity and fast senescence. This study evaluated the effects of applications of 0.05 mM methyl salicylate (MeSA), 1.0 mM of salicylic acid (SA) and 1.0...
