Evidence against the Regulation of Grain Set by Spikelet Abscisic Acid Levels in Water-Stressed Wheat.

Abstract

A possible role of abscisic acid (ABA) in the regulation of grain set in water-stressed wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) was investigated using a split root system to dry half the roots while the remainder were kept watered. Water uptake by the wet roots maintained the leaf water potential at the normal level, whereas the ABA produced in the dry roots was… (More)
