. Floriculture crops suffer stress from high temperature, low light, nutrient deficiencies, and water deprivation during shipping and retailing ( Armitage, 1993 ; Starman et al., 2007 ). Toning by reducing fertility and available water during the last 2 weeks of

contribute to our understanding of salt tolerance and provide tools to improve crops. Because of their crucial roles in plant growth under environmental stress, the metabolism of several compounds has been studied in tall fescue under salinity stress. Sucrose

Transplanting results in transplant shock in seedlings, limiting stand establishment and productivity of many vegetable crops ( Agehara and Leskovar, 2012 ; Vavrina, 2002 ). Transplant shock is caused by various types of abiotic stress occurring

stress could delay flowering in citrus. We hypothesized that if the Florida ‘Valencia’ bloom period could be delayed by a few weeks using winter drought stress without negative effects on the quality of the current season's crop, the fruitlets from

major cause of postproduction decline in greenhouse crops, and plants quickly become unsalable ( Armitage, 1993 ; Barrett and Campbell, 2006 ; van Iersel et al., 2009 ). The ABA helps plants survive drought stress by closing stomata to reduce

Breeding is one of the most efficient methods for managing abiotic stress. Some abiotic stresses directly reduce growth. Others affect development in a way that reduces or eliminates the crop's value. An example of the latter is superoptimal
