Environmental effects on dynamics of fruit growth and photoassimilate translocation in tomato plants (3): effect of salt stress



Environmental effects on dynamics of fruit growth and photoassimilate translocation in tomato plants (3): effect of salt stress



Environment Control in Biology 39(1): 53-58



The effects of salt stress on the dynamics of expansive growth and water balance in a growing fruit of tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum) were analysed by evaluating the components of fruit water balance such as phloem sap and xylem sap fluxes through the pedicel. Salt stress was induced by adding NaCl to the hydroponic nutrient solution. The major part of sap flux into the fruit through the pedicel was brought by phloem sap flux, which was scarcely affected by the salt stress.
