additional calcium partially prevented the growth-inhibiting and physiological (root hydraulic conductance, g S ) effects of Na + (60 m m ) on tomato. Lopez and Satti (1996) found that adding 20 m m Ca 2+ to a saline nutrient solution (50 m m NaCl

, the stem-diameter/growth-inhibiting NaCl concentration was 0.4%. For stem height, G. triacanthos and F. pennsylvanica were affected negatively by 0.4% NaCl, whereas Q. virginiana and M. cerifera were affected negatively by 0.6% NaCl. In our

). Competition for water was insufficient in this study to affect growth because midday stem water potential was consistently above growth-inhibiting values of −0.9 to −1.2 MPa ( Girona et al., 2006 ; Schultz and Matthews, 1988 ). The water potentials in this

, respectively ( Yamaguchi, 2008 ). The growth inhibitor, ABA, was present, but at much lower concentrations than its inactive glucose ester or catabolites. The presence of ABA in the MLE clearly did not inhibit vegetative or reproductive growth of the tomato

growth-inhibiting effect caused by a direct physical impact by touching, rubbing, or brushing is mainly used to improve plant quality criteria such as stability and appearance, thereby increasing the market value of greenhouse-raised plants ( Garner and

developed by Kumiai Chemical Co. KIH-485's mode of action is like that of a seedling growth inhibitor similar to metolachlor. Early indications have shown it being an effective chemical for preemergence grass control and for the control of several broadleaf
