Hormonal regulation of crop architecture in response to strong soil
Lloyd, David Paul Alex (2016) Hormonal regulation of crop architecture in response to strong soil. PhD thesis, University of Nottingham.
The architecture of crop plants is determined by adaptation to environmental conditions within genetic constraints and has considerable influence on the ability of a crop to produce high yields. The abiotic stress of strong soil reduces growth of roots and shoots, limiting the yields of wheat and rice plants. This project investigates the hormonal signals mediating architectural responses to strong soil, aiming to improve the understanding of this plant-environment interaction.
