Summary As a crop new to the western world, opportunities for production of Chinese water chestnut have barely been exploited. In China, over the latitude range 21º to 34ºN it is planted in spring and harvested in autumn. Opportunitiesexist to extend its cultivation to new climates, where growth throughout the year is not constrained by low temperature, but may be constrained by photoperiod. To study the response of Chinese water chestnut to photoperiod, six experiments wereconducted intropical…
