during storage. The objectives of the present investigation were to 1) study effects of harvesting at different times of the day on water uptake, changes in fresh weight, termination symptoms, LRWC, carbohydrates status, and vase life of cut ‘ABC Purple

some mechanistic assumptions ( Pardossi et al., 2004 ). The list of factors (input or independent variables) assumed to influence crop mineral relations such as environmental conditions and water uptake can be regarded as a mechanistic assumption in

, water uptake varied with shade and duration from 2.2 to 1.5 L·d −1 , whereas in 2005, water uptake only varied with shade density from 2.2 to 1.8 L·d −1 ( Fig. 2 ). There were also differences between years in uptake of nitrogen and potassium within

by increasing the capacity for water uptake of roots or reducing water loss from leaves. Previous studies with turfgrass species have shown that extensive root systems and root viability contribute positively to water uptake and thus, plant survival

Many soft and fleshy fruit crack on exposure of the fruit to surface water. Osmotic water uptake that occurs along a gradient in water potential between the surface water on the fruit and the water inside the fruit is thought to be causal. The water

the whole-plant scale, some species partition relatively more biomass to roots to increase water uptake ( Jaramillo et al., 2013 ; Lynch, 2007a , 2007b ) as a way to maintain plant water status and photosynthesis under drought conditions. This

evaporation in the 0- to 15-cm soil layer. The significantly higher root density in the irrigated than nonirrigated zones suggest that water uptake might have been greater in the former than the latter because root water uptake is intrinsically related to root

postharvest quality ( Conrado et al., 1980 ; Durkin, 1979 ). It is well known that vase solution can influence the populations of yeast, bacteria, and fungi, leading to vascular blockage, thus preventing water uptake, and decreasing the longevity of cut

.1536) between optimal production K (Ψ = −75 hPa) and measured K s for bark-based substrates ( Fields, 2017 ). This is due to K being a limiting factor for water uptake by roots in soilless substrates ( Raviv et al., 1999 ) and field soils ( Campbell and

multiplication ratios. The fiber reduced water uptake and prevented hypoxia. The fiber matrix may be constructed with varying thickness or used with varied volumes of medium to allow greater biomass with reduced hyperhydricity. The simple alterations of medium
