The partial loss or reduction of leaf area is a wide-spread occurrence in the plant life cycle, caused e.g. by herbivory, stress or pathogen attack. The objective of the study was to evaluate the effect of partial defoliation on fruit production and quality in strawberry (Fragaria ×ananassa Duch. cv. Chandler). Plants were grown in a greenhouse in Tunja, Colombia, in hydroponics with an aerated nutrient solution. As leaves emerged, one or two leaflets were removed from each compound leaf, to… CONTINUE READING
