Response of winter root starch concentration to severe water stress and fruit load and its subsequent effects on early peach fruit development.

Abstract

Effect of water stress during stage III of peach fruit development on winter root starch concentration (RSC) and subsequent reproductive development was studied. Two irrigation treatments were applied in two consecutive seasons (2003-2004): full irrigation (FI) and no irrigation during stage III of fruit development until visible leaf wilting (LWI), which… (More)
