Crop yield and fruit quality in fruit trees are highly dependent on efficient capture of solar energy and subsequent allocation of photoassimilate. Source-sink relationships are important factors influencing these allocation patterns. Fruit

their relationship with SBI in ‘Honeycrisp’ apples are limited because fruit quality attributes of this variety (internal ethylene concentration, starch index, firmness, and soluble solid content) were found to show no consistent patterns among years

(Mohr Digi-Test; Mohr & Associates, Richland, WA), equipped with a cylindrical plunger 11 mm in diameter ( Evans et al., 2010 ). The measurement was performed on two pared surfaces on opposite sides of the fruit equator region. Starch pattern index was

Digi-test data. Starch pattern index was estimated by cutting each fruit horizontally through the equator and then staining the cut surface using a potassium-iodine (1.5% KI, 0.6% I) solution. Starch pattern index from 1 (100% starch) to 6 (0% starch

not affect the root-to-shoot ratio. Plant growth regulators have been shown to change carbon partitioning patterns and increase starch production in several species ( Mehouachi et al., 1996 ; Pennisi et al., 2003 ). In general, the major starch

. Carbohydrate partitioning in the form of specific sugars, starch, and reserve carbohydrates is fundamental for perpetuating shoot growth in optimizing cumulative responses of biomass yields and quality attributes of tea crops. Mudau et al. (2016) demonstrated

( Fitzgerald et al., 2010 ; Perry et al., 2012 ) shows that using remote sensing to estimate N in wheat canopies is effective, and calculation of the Canopy Chlorophyll Content Index (CCCI) from canopy spectral reflectance of wheat showed good correlation with
