- ... Carbohydrates availability, which are directly related to photosynthesis (AN), and turgor are the main determinants of fruit growth. Since stomatal conductance (gs) is the main limiting factor of AN in fruit trees in most environments, and is strongly regulated by turgor, its measurement is pivotal to understanding fruit growth dynamics. Despite its relevance, the use of gs to estimate AN faces th ...
