Calcium (Ca) is an essential plant nutrient involved in determining fruit quality of several fruits, including kiwifruit. The objective of the present study was to evaluate the influence of light intensity on transpiration and water flow into fruit of kiwifruit (Actinidia deliciosa var. deliciosa, C.F. Liang et A.R. Ferguson) and the resulting effects on Ca accumulation. At fruit-set two light treatments were imposed on single canes. The exposed treatment was maintained through summer pruning… CONTINUE READING
