Post harvest and air transport

Attached is an article by retired CA researcher, Michale Reid, on post harvest handling of cut flowers especially as it relates to air transport. It covers basic information on growth and senescence (death) of cut flowers, factors influencing post harvest quality such as light, water, and flower maturity, flower treatments and packing and handling techniques. It is generic for all cut flowers so some of the issues are not directly related to peonies. However, it is a great review of post harvest handling techniques. 08.Reid
