Abstract

The Ohio Cooperative Extension Service and The Ohio State University sponsored a symposium December 9-10, 1977 for members of the nursery production and scientific communities to update their knowledge and exchange ideas as it related to the winter storage of woody ornamentals. The symposium participants discussed the physiology of winter storage, pre-storage practices, determining maturity and prediction of harvest dates, acclimating plants to storage, principles of common and refrigerated storage, construction and orientation of storage structures, poly-coverings, disease control, anti-transpirants, minimum-heat, thermoblankets, heat saving techniques, and future needs. A summary of the discussions as well as research ideas are presented in this report. Copies of the proceedings of the Woody Ornamentals Winter Storage Symposium can be obtained for $5.00. Persons interested should enclose a check payable to Storage Symposium to Dr. Elton M. Smith, Department of Horticulture, 2001 Fyffe Court, Columbus, Oh, 43210.
