Ozone injury and ethylene diurea: first results on different species in the Campania region

, : Ozone injury and ethylene diurea: first results on different species in the Campania region. Responses of plants to air pollution: biological and economic aspects Proceedings of a conference held in Pisa, Italy, 7-8 April 1994: 109-118

In pot experiments in spring-summer 1993 at Portici, Italy, Trifolium subterraneum Geraldton, lettuces Smeraldo, Phaseolus vulgaris Lit and tomatoes San Marzano were exposed during their growing periods to high ambient ozone levels, and were treated every 14 days with 0 or 150 p.p.m. ethylene diurea (EDU). Because T. subterraneum suffers in excessively high temperatures, studies with this species were also carried out in a greenhouse in which ozone levels were low.
