Influence of Soil Moisture on Leaf Color and Foliage Volume of Beans Grown under Greenhouse Conditions1
- R. D. Burman and
- L. I. Painter2
The color of small new bean leaves was observed to change with increasing soil-moisture tension. The character of the color change was different for various stages of growth and was greatest when the plants were in the seedling stage. Plant growth-rate as indicated by the measurement of foliage volume of intact plants was depressed as soil-moisture diminished and leaf color became darker.Please view the pdf by using the Full Text (PDF) link under 'View' to the left.
