Phytomonitoring techniques for irrigation of avocado orchards indicate that plants respond very rapidly to fluctuations in soil water content. Root to leaf abscicic acid transport cannot fully explain the almost immediate response of stomata to either irrigation and/or sudden changes in climatic conditions. Therefore, we studied the existence of a fast conducting signal between roots and leaves, and the possible involvement of such a signal in the regulation of stomatal behavior. Two-year-old… CONTINUE READING
