Tulip bulbs tulipa gesneriana l

Tulip bulbs (Tulipa gesneriana L.)

  • World wide use of tulip as ornamental plant

  • Needs a cold period during dormancy to facilitate normal development and flowering

  • Fundamental knowledge about bulb dormancy and growth is limited


Purpose of the project

Purpose of the project:

To determine if significant differences in water status between bulbs stored at 4 oC and at 20 oC can be observed using MRI.

Mainly using:

  • Visible morphological changes in the images

  • Proton density determination

  • R2 measurements (1/T2)

  • ADC measurements (reflecting proton mobility)

  • R1 measurements (1/T1)

Conclusions

Conclusions

  • MR parameters such as R2 and ADC can be used to observe differences between chilled and non-chilled bulbs

  • MRI needs to be combined with histology to understand the observed changes in water status

  • The majority of changes in water status take place between 2 and 8 weeks after storage
