Effects of Different Light Sources on Shoot to Root Ratio and Intumescence Incidence in Tomato Seedlings Grown in a Commercial Closed Seedling Production System

Yoko Miyama

Volume 10, Special issue (Light in horticulture) , December 2023, Pages 1-8


  Intumescence is a physiological disorder in which cell walls are disrupted. Intumescence causes leaf deformation, browning and defoliation, and commonly affects tomato plants. This is a limitation in seedling production. The causes of intumescence are not known; however, ultraviolet (UV) deficiency is ...  Read More
