Single-cut or “once-over” harvesting of standard chrysanthemums may be possible commercially, according to results of trials conducted during the summer and fall of 1971 at floriculture greenhouses of the Deciduous Fruit Field Station, San Jose. Cultivars tested included ‘Albatross,’ ‘Detroit News’ and ‘Escapade.’ These are the major white, bronze and pink standards grown during the summer in California. Additional trials with other cultivars are in progress.
