Root chicory (Cichorium intybus var. sativum) is a cash crop cultivated for inulin production in Western Europe. This plant can be exposed to severe water stress during the last 3 months of its 6-month growing period. The aim of this study was to quantify the effect of a progressive decline in water availability on plant growth, photosynthesis, and sugar(More)
Flooding stress is known to affect root growth and sugar metabolism in plants, but data are crucially missing for Cichorium intybus which stores inulin in its tap root. The aim of the present study was to quantify the impact of recurrent episodes of flooding stress on plant growth, water status, photosynthesis and sugar metabolism in relation to inulin(More)
