  author={Halil Kirnak and Cengiz Kaya and I. Tas and David Higgs},
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 oC compared to the control. The water stress resulted in significant decreases in… CONTINUE READING
