- ... The adaptation of alfalfa (Medicago sativa L.) to well-drained soil has limited its range of culture. The poor performance of this crop in wet soils has often been attributed to the effects of Phytophthora root rot (PRR). However, excess soil water itself may reduce alfalfa growth. The impact of continuous excess soil water stress (ESWS) and PRR stress (PRRS) and the growth potential after elimina ...

- ... Meadowfoam (Limnanthes alba Benth.), a new oilseed crop, is adapted to wet meadows in its native habitat. The effect of plant water stress during seed development has not been reported, but was postulated as a cause of seed yield variation in cultivated fields. The objective of this field study was to characterize meadowfoam response to water stress. Treatments included: No irrigation (control); e ...
