- ... Calcium deficiency disorders in fruit, such as bitter pit (BP), have puzzled researchers for years, and little is known regarding the mechanisms involved in the development of these physiophaties. Previous studies have suggested abscisic acid (ABA) as an alternative treatment to influence calcium allocation to the fruit, by regulating stomatal conductance and transpiration in leaves. We explored t ...
