Rootstocks and Plant Water Relations affect Sugar Accumulation of Citrus Fruit via Osmotic Adjustment

The aim of the study is to determine how rootstock types affects sugar accumulation in Citrus fruit. This was tested by using controlled water-deficit stress during phase II of fruit growth, that causes active osmotic adjustment by increasing the solute concentration in fruit due to sucrose being hydrolyzed to fructose and glucose.
