Response of the photosynthetic apparatus to a flowering-inductive period by water stress in Citrus

  title={Response of the photosynthetic apparatus to a flowering-inductive period by water stress in Citrus},
  author={Catarino {\'A}vila and Jose Luis Guardiola and Sergio G. Nebauer},
The photosynthetic responses to a flowering-inductive water-stress period and recovery were studied and compared in two Citrus species. Under greenhouse conditions, Fino lemon and Owari satsuma trees were subjected to moderate (−2 MPa at predawn) and severe (−3 MPa) water stress levels and were re-watered after 60 days. Vegetative growth was inhibited during the stress assays, and strong defoliation levels were reported, especially in Fino lemon. In both species, bud sprouting was induced after… CONTINUE READING
