The growth response of tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum L.) to temperature and irradiance may be related to carbohydrate concentration. Plants in the exponential phase of vegetative growth were grown under temperatures ranging from 9 to 36 degrees C and under low or high irradiances of approximately 110 or 370 microeinsteins per square meter per second photosynthetically active radiation for a 12 hour photoperiod. The relative growth rate, leaf area ratio, net assimilation rate and whole plant… CONTINUE READING
