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

in vitro. ABA, a recognized plant stress hormone and growth inhibitor, has been shown to be an effective plant growth regulator of induction of cold acclimation ( Theocharis et al., 2012 ). Application of exogenous ABA has been shown to induce

, 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

during the development of ‘Clementine’ mandarin fruit. The relative balance between growth-promoting GAs and the growth inhibitor effect of ABA appears to play an important role in the regulation of fruit development in seedless mandarin. It has been

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
