Effect of Day and Night Temperature Alternations on Plant Morphogenesis
Approach on the environmental improvement has been done in a variety of industrial fields to correspond to serious global environmental concerns. The importance of the conversion to sustainable agriculture has been recognized in agriculture, and the technique breaking away from the agriculture depending on agricultural chemicals has been studied. In agricultural production in greenhouses, the production technique which does not use agricultural chemicals as much as possible attracted attention. The technique for plant height control using the temperature difference between day and night (DIF), which was developed in the 1980s and has been studied, is one of the alternatives of agricultural chemicals, and it has been widely used in the flower production in the world. This review is to summarize recent research results on DIF.
