An integrated view of the physiology of apple water relations

Thursday, October 18, 2018 at 12:20pm to 1:10pm

Emerson Hall, 135

The apple tree is a long-lived perennial fruit tree that has a unique combination of characteristics of water relations. In general apple is considered drought tolerant to moderate drought via osmotic adjustment, but susceptible to severe drought.  Apple trees in field environments display a high level of water use efficiency due to close integration with the carbon physiology. Understanding the integration of water and carbon physiology has led to the development of an apple-specific Penman-Monteith model of water use providing grower guidance for irrigation.
