Under natural conditions, citrus ( Citrus sp.) trees are induced to flower by seasonal exposure to either cool ambient temperatures (5 to 20 °C) or water deficit ( Cassin et al., 1969 ; Moss, 1969 ). In subtropical regions where citrus are grown

Water deficit is considered as a major environmental factor that influences various physiological and biochemical processes in plants ( Tezara et al., 1999 ). Plants can exhibit either drought escape or drought resistance mechanisms, with resistance

-induced dormancy as a coping mechanism during extended periods of water deficit stress ( Zhang et al., 2019 ). Recovery and regrowth from drought-induced dormancy would be expected as rainfall or irrigation returned, as long as soil conditions did not restrict root

One means of achieving water conservation in turf management is by providing water at rates below a plant’s maximal consumptive water use, otherwise known as deficit irrigation ( Feldhake et al., 1984 ; Fry and Butler, 1989 ; Qian and Engelke

). These poor postproduction conditions often cause water deficit stress, leading to decreased aesthetic values and marketability ( Armitage, 1993 ; Sharma et al., 2006 ). When encountering water deficit stress, plants need to reduce transpiration to
