In a previous paper it has been demonstrated that tomato stems, submitted to a controlled basal bending, had a reduced terminal primary elongation, indicating mechanosensing and intra plant signalling. The 'intensity' of the growth response, as measured by the time to recover an elongation rate similar to the control, varied hugely between plants. However, no relation was found between the intensity of this response and the mechanical variables characterizing the global mechanical state of the… CONTINUE READING
