Diffusion pressure deficit (DPD), the most suitable index of the water status of plant tissue, expresses the total forces of water absorption, in the same units as may be used for water retention by the soil and atmosphere environment with which moisture exchange occurs. The possibility of estimation by correlation with more easily measured indices of water status was examined for leaf tissue of Sorghum vulgare. Two methods, involving relative turgidity (RT) and beta-radiation absorption, were… CONTINUE READING
