Water stress during the post-harvest period affects new root formation but not starch concentration and content in Chardonnay grapevine (Vitis vinifera L.) perennial organs
(Scientia Horticulturae, 2019-02-15)
Water stress responses during the post-harvest period were evaluated in a Chardonnay container-grown grapevines grafted onto 1103 Paulsen rootstock. The irrigation treatments were: a control treatment ...
Using forced regrowth to manipulate Chardonnay grapevine (Vitis vinifera L.) development to evaluate phenological stage responses to temperature
(Scientia Horticulturae, 2019-12-06)
Time and environmental conditions, such as temperature and photoperiod, are the main drivers governing grapevine development over the growing season. The most obvious growth periods in grapevines are ...
Exploiting Genetic and Genomic Resources to Enhance Heat-Tolerance in Tomatoes
High temperature is one of the most detrimental abiotic stresses in tomatoes. Many studies highlighted that even small increases in temperature can alter the plant reproductive system, causing ...
Evaluation of chemical fruit thinning efficiency using Brevis® (Metamitron) on apple trees (‘Gala’) under Spanish conditions
(Scientia Horticulturae, 2019-11-15)
Thinning is an important technique in apple growing which is used to reduce the number of fruits per plant and achieve commercial fruit size and quality. The objective of this work was to evaluate the ...
