While cut flower growers are facing unprecedented market conditions in the wake of the Covid19 pandemic, most professionals saw these heartbreaking images of large quantities of stems sent directly to waste.
As some species are set to reach their peak season very soon (especially tulips), it appears that a storage technology in controlled atmosphere boxes could be a solution to help growers mitigate the impact of this crisis on their activity.
These boxes, manufactured by the French company Janny MT, are already becoming well known in the peony sector, but are also efficient to store tulip’s stems and to maintain their quality for several weeks. These boxes can also maintain the freshness and colors of cut roses for several weeks, and are expected to be as efficient for a wide range of other species that respond well to low oxygen conditions.
