Measuring Arabidopsis, Tomato and Barley Leaf Relative Water Content (RWC)
Authors:  Nir Sade, Eyal Galkin and Menachem Moshelion, date: 04/20/2015, view: 4086, Q&A: 0
Measuring leaf relative water content (RWC) is a reliable and simple way to assess the water status of a leaf without any need for special equipment. Similar to leaf water potential, leaf RWC gives a strong indication of the plant’s response to ...
