Foliar sprays with ABA promote growth of Ilex paraguariensis by alleviating diurnal water stress


Stomatal closure, relative water content (RWC) and vegetative growth were monitored in Ilex paraguariensis plants grown under well-watered conditions with a photosynthetic photon flux density (PPFD) varying from 100% to 1.5%, and sprayed weekly with either distilled water (control) or 1.89 mM abscisic acid (ABA). ABA treatments caused stomatal closure… (More)
