Influence of changes in temperature on the growth and chemical composition of alfalfa (Medicago sativa L.)



Influence of changes in temperature on the growth and chemical composition of alfalfa (Medicago sativa L.)



Dissertation Abstracts International, B 33(10): 4619



In growth-chamber experiments, lucerne was grown with various combinations of day temperatures of 33, 27 or 21 deg C and night temperatures of 24, 18 or 12 deg. Days to flowering, dry weight and total non-structural carbohydrate (TNC) content decreased with decreasing temperature, while the mineral contents at 1st flowering increased. Shoot height and growth rate were greatest at the highest temperatures.
