Title
(EN) USE OF TRACERS TO MONITOR APPLICATION OF TREATMENT PRODUCTS TO CUT FLOWERS
(FR) UTILISATION DE TRACEURS POUR CONTROLER L'APPLICATION DE PRODUITS DE TRAITEMENT A DES FLEURS COUPEES
Abstract
(EN)
A method to determine whether the desired amount of treatment product is present in water that cut flowers are placed in, is described and claimed. The method comprises the steps of: a) adding a known amount of an inert fluorescent tracer to a known amount of treatment product, with said treatment product being suitable for application to water that cut flowers are placed in; b) applying said treatment product to water that cut flowers are placed in; c) using a fluorometer to measure the fluorescent signal of said inert fluorescent tracer in said water that cut flowers are placed in; and optionally d) adjusting the amount of treatment product applied to said water that cut flowers are placed in, based on the measured fluorescent signal of said inert fluorescent tracer.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un procédé permettant de déterminer si la quantité désirée de produit de traitement est présente dans une eau dans laquelle sont placées des fleurs coupées. Ce procédé comprend les étapes consistant: a) à ajouter une quantité connue d'un traceur fluorescent inerte à une quantité connue de produit de traitement, ledit produit de traitement étant approprié à une application à une eau dans laquelle sont placées des fleurs coupées, b) à appliquer ledit produit de traitement à une eau dans laquelle sont placées des fleurs coupées, c) à utiliser un fluoromètre pour mesurer le signal fluorescent dudit traceur fluorescent inerte dans ladite eau dans laquelle sont placées des fleurs coupées, et éventuellement d) à ajuster la quantité de produit de traitement appliqué à ladite eau dans laquelle sont placées des fleurs coupées, sur la base du signal fluorescent mesuré dudit traceur fluorescent inerte.
