Begonia Pot Plant Quality Scores

Share:

Description

Begonia pot plant quality scores (for 2 varieties and 3 transport chains), during 5 weeks in simulated shelf-life conditions (temperature, light and irrigation). Quality scores were originally made on an ordinal scale from 1 to 10 (highest quality). However, only categories 2 to 9 were used, so these were re-coded to scale from 1 to 8. In addition to overall quality scores, a range of plant physiological characteristics were also observed.
