New inhibitors of ethylene perception in improvement of display quality in miniature roses (Rosa hybrida L.)
The miniature potted roses are popular greenhouse crops in many parts of the world. In the 1980s the introduction of new varieties had a dramatic impact on the European and North American markets. Current world production is estimated at around 100 million pots yearly. Major centers of production include Denmark, the Netherlands, the United States, Canada and Japan with production also in France, Germany and Italy (Pemberton et al., 2003).
