officinalis L.). Although concentrations were higher, essential oil yield (per unit growing area) of lemon catmint and lemon balm was lower in the drought-stressed plants because of reduced growth and harvestable plant material. In contrast, both Bettaieb et

Many fruit trees require cross-pollination to reach their full yield potential. In highbush blueberries ( Vaccinium corymbosum L. and its hybrids), optimal pollination by genotype combination results in higher fruit set, larger berries, and earlier
