Modified Atmosphere Use in Extending Unrooted Cutting Quality and Viability

W. Roland Leatherwood and John Dole (NC State University),Jim Faust (Clemson University)

Modified atmosphere (MA) storage is an adjustment in atmospheric gas composition so cuttings can be stored for several days without effects.MA has been used to study postharvest respiration, and to extend the shelf life of a broad category of produce.
