    Union Catalogue of Agricultural Libraries in the Netherlands

    The WUR Library Catalogue contains bibliographic data on books and periodicals held by the libraries of Wageningen University and Research Centre and some 15 associated libraries. Holding data are added to each record.

    Subjects covered include Agrotechnology, Food and Food Production, Plant and Animal Sciences, Soil Science, Geo-information, Landscape and Spatial Planning, Water and Climate, Ecosystem Studies, Economics and Society.

    The joint collections of the participating libraries cover a substantial part of the internationally available scientific literature in these disciplines.

    As far as Dutch scientific literature in these fields is concerned, coverage can be considered near 100%, including much of the so-called "grey literature".

    All titles are entered in their original language. Keywords are added to facilitate subject searching.

    The database is updated every day and now contains over 830.000 records.

Both a long photoperiod and strong illumination strongly promoted growth and flowering. These conditions diminished the number of leaf pairs below the flower and promoted growth of flower buds from initiation to bud emergence from the leaves. The subsequent phases to anthesis were little affected by photoperiod and light intensity. Other characters such as stem length, stem diameter, leaf length and width, flower diameter and petal number were affected more by strength than by duration of illumination.

Flower induction was promoted by cold (5°C). But as soon as the flower had been initiated, its development was promoted by warmth.

Carnations were planted the year round at two-week intervals. The shortest time between planting and harvest was 4 months, after planting in April, the longest 8 months, after planting in September. Treatment at 5°C for three weeks reduced the time to the first crop when plants were started between July and November and increased it in plantings between January and June. There was no residual effect of cold on the second crop.
