( Chalmers et al., 1981 ; Domínguez et al., 2012 ; Goldhamer, 1989 ). The design of these RDI strategies implies the study of crop responses to water stress while maintaining high-quality parameters in plants and products. Previous research has shown that

summary, a breeder of a horticultural food crop can always expect to deal with the necessity of improving multiple traits. These will likely include traits related to yield and quality as well as tolerance of diseases, pests, and abiotic stresses. Many of

Profitable heirloom tomato production is a major challenge in the southeast as a result of weathered soil structure, abiotic stress, and diseases caused by foliar and soilborne plant pathogens. Diseases caused by pathogens such as Fusarium

masting, defined as intermittent production of large crops of fruit/seed by a population, in forest trees. Both have similar characteristics and have been studied extensively. In forest trees, masting has significant ecological implications on dynamics of
