), presumably because ABA applications reduce the evaporative cooling that results from transpiration. ABA was first identified in the mid-1960s ( Ohkuma et al., 1965 ) and has since been shown to affect a myriad of plant processes, including acclimation to cold

sidewall water loss to overall container evapotranspiration has a major influence on reducing substrate temperature and the evaporative cooling effect, associated with increased water use, and may help reduce heat stress and enhance plant survival in
