Environmental physiology of ornamental crops

Code: 9781786767134
John Erwin, University of Maryland, USA

Chapter synopsis: Ornamental horticulture is one of the most challenging sectors of agriculture. Growers produce hundreds of species from all over the world to market at a specific time of year or for a holiday. To achieve this, growers must have a sophisticated understanding of the environmental physiology of plant growth and development including propagation, and vegetative and reproductive development. These issues are reviewed in this chapter along with key areas that are gaps in our knowledge which have practical implications.
