PE 015 - Inducing compact growth and improved shelf life in herbs by mimicking drought signals

Start Date: 
01/09/2013
Completion Date: 
30/04/2014
Project Leader: 
Professor Peter Kettlewell
Code: 
PE 015

The aim of this project is to explore the potential for mimicking the natural drought signals, which move from root to shoot, to give more-compact growth and improved shelf life in a range of herb species without the detrimental effects of water stress.
