What is it about?
a false or moderate water deficit can induce the up-regulation of resistance genes and improve tomato fruit quality.
Why is it important?
Without real stresses, a false stress to create a crisis signal to induce some sleeping genes that inactivated by excessive fertilization and irrigation. The theory of signal transduction is used in plant production. A new research field neglected by molecular biologists.
