The diurnal courses of plant water potential (ψplant and temperature (canopy-air) (ΔT) were determined for 4 days for a wet soil (six levels of water content, θv, corresponding to values of soil water potential (ψm) of −0.1 to −0.5 bars) as compared with a dry soil (six values of ψm, from −1.6 to −18.0 bars), established by withholding irrigations. In wet soil, ψplant decreased from near zero at p ...

- ... Water-harvesting techniques were applied to a waterstressed native stand of jojoba (Simmondsia chinensis (Link) Schneider) near Phoenix, Arizona, to evaluate this method of supplementing the normally scant rainfall for increasing seed yield and to gain insight into the comsumptive water requirements of the plant. Thirty small, indigenous, female bushes were selected and randomly divided into three ...
