Root zone temperature

Charles Goldwasser Uncategorized

Environmental control has long been an integral┬ápart of maximizing yields in high value crops. Studies have shown that regulating root temperature can ameliorate the effects of sub-optimal air temperatures, increase water transport from the rhizosphere to the leaves, increase stomatal conductance, and increase the dry shoot weight, leaf area, and fruit development. ┬áThese benefits alone warrant looking at root zone …
