Leaf water potential, turgor pressure, and leaf elongation rate were measured in soybeans grow ing in controlled environment chambers, greenhouses, and outdoors. Plants in chambers had the highest water potentials and turgor pressures, and plants outdoors the lowest. In all three environments there was a linear relationship between elongation rate and turgor pressure. Leaves of plants in drier environments required less turgor for elongation, and showed a greater increase in elongation rate per… CONTINUE READING
