Effect of antitranspirant treatment on the water balance of pine seedlings, under different climatic and soil moisture conditions


Antitranspirant treatment with ‘Tag’ — a polyethylene based emulsion-reduced transpiration and increased height of potted pine seedlings under simulated hot and dry conditions when soil was moist. Under cool, humid conditions reduction of transpiration was very much less and growth was slightly reduced. Application of antitranspirants to pine seedling… (More)
