The influence of high night temperature and drought on the abscission of reproductive organs were studied with cowpea (Vigna unguiculata (L.) Walp. cv. ‘California Blackeye No. 5’) in controlled environments. Floral development of cowpeas at 33/22°C day/night temperature appeared to be normal. However, at 33/30°C day/night temperature all flowers abscissed within 48 h after anthesis due to male sterility resulting from abnormal pollen development and anther indehlscience. By moving plants… CONTINUE READING
