Short note on the wilting phenomenon in crop plants

, : Short note on the wilting phenomenon in crop plants. Agronomy Journal 65(3): 514-515

n a greenhouse study diurnal variation in water deficit, resistance to water transport and the internal plant-water relations of IR-8 rice plants were determined to understand the phenomenon of wilting in rice plants. Wilting occurs at a definite value of turgor pressure rather than the complete absence of turgor pressure and is associated with a marked change in the elastic property of the leaf tissue. The wilting may also be affected by the resistance to water movement in plant tissues.

Our aim is to compare short tone burst (STB)--and clicks--stimuli to evoke vestibular-evoked myogenic potentials (VEMPs) in healthy controls. A cross-sectional study in which VEMPs were measured in two sets of 185 and 55 normal volunteers by an ai...
