Balancing stomata-dependent CO2 assimilation and transpiration is a key challenge for increasing crop productivity and water use efficiency under drought stress for sustainable crop production worldwide. Here, we show that cucumber and luffa plants with luffa as rootstock have intrinsically increased water use efficiency, decreased transpiration rate and less affected CO2 assimilation capacity following drought stress over those with cucumber as rootstock. Drought accelerated abscisic acid (ABA… Expand
Grafting Cucumber Onto Pumpkin Induced Early Stomatal Closure by Increasing ABA Sensitivity Under Salinity Conditions
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the roots of pumpkin increases the sensitivity of the scion to ABA delivered from the roots to the shoots, and enhances osmotic tolerance under NaCl stress, and can be greatly exploited to benefit vegetable production particularly in semiarid saline regions. Expand
Grafting improves tomato drought tolerance through enhancing photosynthetic capacity and reducing ROS accumulation
TLDR
The results indicate that tomato grafted with drought-tolerant seedlings alleviated the phytotoxicity and oxidative damage caused by drought by regulating antioxidant enzymes under drought stress. Expand
Pepper Rootstock and Scion Physiological Responses Under Drought Stress
TLDR
The A25 rootstock protects the scion against oxidative stress, which is provoked by drought, and shows better C and N balances that enabled the biomass to be maintained under water stress for short-term exposure, with higher yields in the field. Expand
Photosynthesis in reciprocal grafts of drought-tolerant and drought-sensitive cultivars of soybean under water stress
TLDR
Although the photosynthesis of L21 scion was improved by grafting onto L14 rootstock, it was still lower than that of L14 scion, indicating that not only the greater water absorption capacity via roots but also the physiological property of leaves conferred a higher photosynthetic capacity and drought resistance in soybean. Expand
Grafting Enhances Pepper Water Stress Tolerance by Improving Photosynthesis and Antioxidant Defense Systems
TLDR
Water stress significantly stunted growth in all the plant types, although tolerant grafted plants (variety grafted onto H92, Var/H92) had higher leaf area and fresh weight values, and the antioxidant system was effective in removing reactive oxygen species (ROS) that could damage photosynthesis. Expand
Roots play a key role in drought-tolerance of poplars as suggested by reciprocal grafting between male and female clones.
TLDR
Grafted seedlings with male roots can effectively alleviated the inhibition of growth induced by drought stress, as shown by higher WUE, activities of SOD, POD and CAT, and lower levels of lipid peroxidation. Expand
Enhancement of Drought Tolerance in Cucumber Plants by Natural Carbon Materials
TLDR
Results indicate that successive pretreatment of soil with low-cost natural carbon material improved the tolerance of cucumber plants to drought stress. Expand
Vegetable Grafting as a Tool to Improve Drought Resistance and Water Use Efficiency
TLDR
The current review gives an overview of the recent scientific literature on root-shoot interaction and rootstock-driven alteration of growth, yield, and fruit quality in grafted vegetable plants under drought stress and elucidate the drought resistance mechanisms of grafted vegetables at the morpho-physiological, biochemical, and molecular levels.

Dissecting the rootstock control of scion transpiration using model-assisted analyses in grapevine
TLDR
Differences in root architecture, specifically a higher root length area in 110R, likely explain Cabernet Sauvignon grafted onto 110R's higher E and gs observed at low and moderate water deficit. Expand
Agronomic Management for Enhancing Plant Tolerance to Abiotic Stresses—Drought, Salinity, Hypoxia, and Lodging
TLDR
For example, drought tolerance may be enhanced by using lower plant density, anticipating the sowing or transplant as much as possible, using grafting with tolerant rootstocks, and optimizing the control of weeds, which increase survival rate. Expand

Hydrogen peroxide mediates abscisic acid-induced HSP70 accumulation and heat tolerance in grafted cucumber plants.
TLDR
Results suggest that, under heat stress, ABA triggers the expression of HSP70 in an apoplastic H2 O2 -dependent manner, implicating the role of an ABA-dependent H2O2 -driven mechanism in a systemic response involving root-shoot communication. Expand
Review: the interaction between rootstocks and cultivars (Vitis vinifera L.) to enhance drought tolerance in grapevine
TLDR
This review will critically discuss the current knowledge of the mechanisms of drought tolerance afforded by rootstocks, taking into account the scion/rootstock interaction, and will present some of the challenges for future investigations. Expand
Tetraploid Rangpur lime rootstock increases drought tolerance via enhanced constitutive root abscisic acid production.
TLDR
It is concluded that tetraploidy modifies the expression of genes in Rangpur lime citrus roots to regulate long-distance ABA signalling and adaptation to stress. Expand

Enhancing drought tolerance in C(4) crops.
TLDR
Current evidence points to the crucial importance of root traits in drought tolerance in C(4) plants, shoot traits may also be important in maintaining high yields during drought, and the molecular mechanisms underpinning heterosis have considerable potential in enhancing drought stress tolerance.

TLDR
Evidence is provided that Arabidopsis GTL1 negatively regulates WUE by modulating stomatal density via transrepression of SDD1, and that this expression occurred in abaxial epidermal cells where the protein was localized to the nucleus and its expression was downregulated by water stress. Expand
