, 1992 ). Seasonal source–sink relationships between vegetative and reproductive growth also influence leaf N status; for example, developing fruits during the summer act as an N sink ( Fletcher et al., 2009 ). While it is known that increasing N supply

, plant nutrient status can also influence flower initiation and development. When a plant switches its growth from vegetative to reproductive, the sink and source relationship among plant organs is also altered, which leads to changes in nutrient

Sucrose is the principal sugar in plants and plays a vital role in plant growth and development ( Rolland et al., 2006 ) by serving as a critical molecule for carbohydrate and energy flow from source organs to sink organs ( Salerno and Curatti, 2003
