Abstract

Brinjal plants (Solanum melongena L.) grown under moisture stress conditions in glasshouse were treated with three chemicals namely, cycocel, limewash, and potassium chloride to study their effect on leaf temperature, transpiration rate and diffusive resistance. Moisture stress imposed at three stages increased leaf temperature and diffusive resistance but decreased transpiration rate. Application of antitranspirants decreased leaf temperature and transpiration but increased diffusive resistance.
