Effect of Obstructed Translocation on Leaf Abscisic Acid, and Associated Stomatal Closure and Photosynthesis Decline 1


Pod removal or petiole girdling, which causes obstruction of translocation, was found in our previous study to cause reduced rates of photosynthesis in soybean leaves due to stomatal closure. The purpose of this research was to determine the involvement of photoassimilate accumulation and leaf abscisic acid (ABA) levels in the mechanism of stomatal closure induced by such treatments.
