Seasonal transpiration responses of banana in the subtropics



Seasonal transpiration responses of banana in the subtropics



Information Bulletin, Citrus and Subtropical Fruit Research Institute, South Africa (184): 7-8



Studies were made of the transpiration and stomatal resistance responses of plants of the Williams during a typical cloudless day in spring, summer, autumn and winter at Burgershall, and of those of Dwarf Cavendish under hot, stressful conditions at Malelane. Peak transpiration occurred between 1300 and 1600 h, except for the summer stress day in which transpiration peaked at 1100 h. Stomatal resistance was lowest in the morning, being highest in winter and lowest in summer.
