Effect of waterlogged soil conditions on the production of ethylene and on water relationships in tomato plants



Effect of waterlogged soil conditions on the production of ethylene and on water relationships in tomato plants



Journal of Experimental Botany 29(108): 183-193



In greenhouse experiments, the roots of tomato plants were exposed to low concentrations of oxygen by waterlogging the soil or by growing the plants in nutrient solution flushed with nitrogen gas. After 24 h, the rate of ethylene production by the petioles, main stem, and shoot apex was increased by 4-6 fold and the petioles developed epinastic curvatures. Removing the roots did not reproduce these responses.
