The high-pigment hybrid has provided a higher antioxidant content (lycopene and alpha-tocopherol content) than the commercial hybrid, but it was more susceptible to BER and consequently less productive.

Accurate and nondestructive methods to determine individual leaf areas of plants are a useful tool in physiological and agronomic research. Determining the individual leaf area (LA) of rose (Rosa…
Impact of grafting on product quality of fruit vegetables
Yield, Mineral Composition, Water Relations, and Water Use Efficiency of Grafted Mini-watermelon Plants Under Deficit Irrigation
The sensitivity to water stress was similar between grafted and ungrafted plants, and the higher marketable yield from grafted plants was mainly the result of an improvement in nutritional status and higher CO2 assimilation and water uptake from the soil.
Fruit quality of mini‐watermelon as affected by grafting and irrigation regimes
BACKGROUND: The Mediterranean region suffers water deficit that affects fruit yield and quality. Grafting improves crop tolerance to disease and drought, but the taste and quality of fruit may be…
Nutrient solution concentration and growing season affect yield and quality of Lactuca sativa L. var. acephala in floating raft culture.
The use of nutrient solution concentrations of 37 and 44 mequiv L −1 for the spring and summer seasons respectively could be adopted in the present conditions to improve marketable fresh yield and leaf mineral content, but with a slight reduction in some nutritional parameters.
