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… Expand

WATER STRESS AFFECTS GROWTH AND YIELD OF CONTAINER GROWN TOMATO (Lycopersicon esculentum Mill)PLANTS
TLDR
The decrease in plant growth and yield as a result of water stress can be attributed to the effects water has on the physiology of the crop. Expand
PHYSIOLOGICAL CHANGES OF CULTIVATED EGGPLANT (SOLANUM MELONGENA L.) IN RESPONSE TO WATER DEFICIT
TLDR
Results indicate that irrigation treatment with 80% of pot capacity have more efficient water use than 60% and 40%, which reduces drought stress and improves ionic balance of the plants. Expand
Utilizing Deficit Irrigation to Enhance Growth Performance and Water-use Efficiency of Eggplant in Arid Environments
TLDR
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. Expand
Water stress affects the physio-morphological development of tomato growth
TLDR
Moderate water stress at field capacity 60-65 FC% resulted in optimizing plant morphological characteristics, physiological response, yield, shelf-life, and total soluble salt. Expand
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 waterExpand
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) wereExpand
Effect of Water Stress on the Growth, Nutritional and Biochemical Status of Two Varieties of Pomegranate Seedlings
TLDR
Wonderful variety might be more tolerant to drought than Early 116 variety, which accumulated high values of proline in their leaves when subjected to water stress, but the Wonderful variety  accumulated high valuesof proline content under water stress treatments as compared with Early 166 variety. Expand
PHYSIOLOGICAL RESPONSE OF EUCALYPTUS CAMALDULENSIS SEEDLINGS UNDER WATER DEFICIT CONDITIONS
TLDR
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. Expand
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 receivedExpand
Some Morpho-Physiological Characteristics of Mung Bean Mycorrhizal Plants under Different Irrigation Regimes in Field Condition
TLDR
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. Expand

Effect of water stress on aluminum toxicity in pitch pine seedlings
Abstract A decrease in soil water content during droughts may increase aluminum (Al) to concentrations that are toxic to the growth of trees. The effects of water stress (WS) on the response ofExpand
A long-term experiment to study the role of mulches in the physiology and macro-nutrition of strawberry grown under water stress
TLDR
Results clearly indicate that mulching mitigates negative effects of water stress on plant growth and fruit yield in field-grown strawberry, particularly in semi-arid situations. Expand

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

MEASUREMENTS OF LEAF RELATIVE WATER CONTENT IN ARAUCARIA ANGUSTIFOLIA 1
TLDR
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
TLDR
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.
