The biophysical basis of reduced leaf elongation rate in source-reduced barley (Hordeum vulgare L. cv Golf) was studied. Reduction in source strength was achieved by removing the blade of leaves 1 and 2 at the time leaf 3 had emerged 3.0–6.7 cm from the encircling sheath. Third leaves of source-reduced plants elongated at 10–36% lower velocities than those of control plants. Removal of source leaves had no significant effect on maximum relative elemental growth rates (REGRs) and the length of… CONTINUE READING
