·L −1 at 1 atm and 25 °C. Within the root zone, Van Iersel and Dove (2014) pointed out that in a well-irrigated substrate, the relative humidity is likely to be close to 100%, resulting in reduced partial pressure of oxygen because of water vapor (19

Growth periodicity is generally conceived as a set pattern of growth incited by internal factors and influenced by environmental conditions ( Morrow, 1950 ). The inherent alternation between periods of abundant root and shoot growth and little or
