Using Growth and Transpiration Phenotyping Under Controlled Conditions to Select Water Efficient Banana Genotypes

Jelle van Wesemael, Ewaut Kissel, David Eyland, Tracy Lawson, Rony Swennen, Sebastien Carpentier
2019 Frontiers in Plant Science  
Water deficit is one of the world's major constraints in agriculture and will aggravate in the future. Banana (Musa spp.) is an important crop that needs vast amounts of water for optimal production.  ...  We predict therefore that these genotypes have potential for high productivity under rain fed conditions with a short dry season.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS The authors would like to thank Evy Vandebosch, Edwige André, and Lut Ooms for the plant growth and phenotyping.  ...
