Evaluating rootzone stresses and the role of the root system on rose crop productivity and fertilizer-water use efficiency: Setting-up the experiment
Evaluating rootzone stresses and the role of the root system on
The proposed studies intend to characterize the productivity, quality and physiological performance of rose plants growing on their own roots versus grafted on a rootstock (‘Natal Briar’) when growing under challenging and/or heterogeneous rootzone stresses, namely alkalinity (varying pH conditions), salinity, high boron and high ammonium-N ratios. The ultimate objective of the proposed studies is to suggest management practices that might minimize the deleterious effects of these stresses, maintaining their productivity-quality and perhaps even enhancing their water and fertilizer use efficiency.
