Summary. The effects of water deficit on plant growth, physiology and dry matter accumulation in the eggplant (Solanum melongena L. cv., Teorem F1) grown in pot were studied under out door conditions. Water stress was imposed by irrigating the plants with 80%, 60% and 40% of water needed to reach pot capacity (PC) in the soil. Control plants were irrigated 100% of PC. Water deficits increased leaf temperature up to 3-4 o C compared to the control. The water stress resulted in significant…

Utilizing Deficit Irrigation to Enhance Growth Performance and Water-use Efficiency of Eggplant in Arid Environments

Deficit Irrigation level at 80% can be utilized to increase WUE without a significant effect on crop growth performance, and biochemical parameters showed an increase in proline and a decrease in chlorophyll content under water deficit conditions.

Water stress affects the physio-morphological development of tomato growth

Moderate water stress at field capacity 60-65 FC% resulted in optimizing plant morphological characteristics, physiological response, yield, shelf-life, and total soluble salt.

Effect of Water Stress on Growth and Physiology of Tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum Mill.)

The effects of drought on physiology of Tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum Mill.) cv., Farida grown in pots were studied. Drought stress was done by irrigating the plants with 80, 60 and 40% of water

EFFECTS OF FOLIAR SPRAYING KINETIN ON GROWTH PARAMETERS AND PHOTOSYNTHESIS OF TOMATO UNDER DIFFERENT LEVELS OF DROUGHT STRESS

The effects of 2 concentrations of kinetin, i.e., 2 and 4 mM together with 2 levels of drought stress, i.e., moderate (35% soil saturation capacity) and severe (20% soil saturation capacity) were

Impact of water deficit on correlations and changes of some physiological traits of sweet pepper (Capsicum annuum

Changes in nutrients elements uptake, physiological characteristics, as well as, correlations analysis for these traits to each other are good factors to study the effects of drought on sweet pepper and disclose physiological reaction to several specific levels of stress from water deficit.

PHYSIOLOGICAL RESPONSE OF EUCALYPTUS CAMALDULENSIS SEEDLINGS UNDER WATER DEFICIT CONDITIONS

The obtained results indicated that both plant shoot height and stem diameter were significantly reduced and the effect was most substantiated in the seedlings which were irrigated at the longest irrigation interval, suggesting that Eucalyptus camaldulensis is rather sensitive to water deficit conditions.

Responses to the Irrigation Water Amount of Spinach Supplemented with Organic Amendment in Greenhouse Conditions

The effect of organic amendment applications on some agrophysiological properties of pot-grown spinach was investigated under drought stress. The I1, I2, I3, and I4 irrigation treatments received

Some Morpho-Physiological Characteristics of Mung Bean Mycorrhizal Plants under Different Irrigation Regimes in Field Condition

The mycorrhizal plants produced a higher seed yield, leaf phosphorus, leaf nitrogen, chlorophyll index, proline, total soluble carbohydrates content, relative water content, root length, root volume, root dry weight and root/shoot weight ratio as compared with non-mycorrhIZal plants.

Response of Leek (Allium porrum L.) to Different Irrigation Water Levels Under Rain Shelter

ABSTRACT A pot experiment was conducted to investigate the effects of different water levels on water-use efficiency, yield and growth parameters of leek (Allium porrum L.) and was carried out in the

Field evaluation of deficit irrigation effects on tomato growth performance, water-use efficiency and control of parasitic nematode infection

The results indicated that the DI at a certain limit decreased M. javanica infection without causing significant reductions in tomato growth performance.

Leaf Water Relations, Osmotic Adjustment, Cell Membrane Stability, Epicuticular Wax Load and Growth as Affected by Increasing Water Deficits in Sorghum

The cultivars which maintained higher CMS, higher EWL, lower cuticular conductance, higher turgor and higher osmotic adjustment under water deficit conditions were identified as drought tolerant.

Tomato yield-evapotranspiration relationships, seasonal canopy temperature and stomatal conductance as affected by irrigation

There appeared to be a distinct threshold seasonal ET value of 88 mm, below which yield was negligible and above which yield rose linearly with the seasonal ET rate, which indicated that they were subjected to the greater degree of water stress.

MEASUREMENTS OF LEAF RELATIVE WATER CONTENT IN ARAUCARIA ANGUSTIFOLIA 1

Measurements of relative water content (RWC) in leaf tissues are commonly used to assess the water status of plants and indicate that leaves of A. angustifolia require longer periods of imbibition than broadleaf species, probably related to drought-induced structural changes in the leaf tissue.

Changes in plant response to NaCl during development of rice (Oryza sativa L.) varieties differing in salinity resistance

There was an ontogenic evolution of salt resistance and the young seedling stage appeared to be the most sensitive to NaCl during vegetative growth, but short- and middle term effects of stress have to be distinguished for each genotype since some varieties showed better growth during the second week of stress than during the first, whilst others showed an opposite trend.
