Effects of changes in source-sink ratio on the shedding of flowers and pods in broad bean

Effects of changes in source-sink ratio on the shedding of flowers and pods in broad bean

Plant Physiology Communications (1): 18-21

When one-third of the leaves were removed or the plants were covered with a single layer of gauze for 20 days, shedding of flowers and pods was not noticeably affected, but when two-thirds of the leaves were removed or the plants were covered with two layers of gauze for 10 days, shedding increased significantly, and DW, assimilate distribution to the seeds, and soluble sugar content decreased.
