, lasting only a few hours after ABA treatment. It is possible that ABA temporarily increases water uptake through its impact on aquaporins and then limits it by causing morphological changes to the roots (i.e., suberization) as a means of protecting the

soilless substrate may improve the PUE of container-grown crops because P is retained in the root zone. In contrast to soils, pine bark substrates have no appreciable source of labile P to resupply pore-water with OP during root uptake. However, the effects

Rain cracking of sweet cherry fruit is an important limitation in crop production worldwide and is thought to be related to water uptake through the fruit surface. This uptake occurs by diffusion through the cuticle and by viscous flow along an

Dissolved oxygen (DO) is the free oxygen available in solutions and is consumed in the metabolism of all aerobic organisms. DO concentration in water is used as an indicator of the health of ecosystems, and it varies with solution temperature
