    of mulched tobacco turn yellow and wither before normal ripening on the sandy-loam soils along the Inland Sea coast. Dry weight of mulched tobacco exceeded that of unmulched tobacco during early growth, but after top-dressing (38 days after transplanting) the growth of mulched tobacco declined and the lower leaves senesced prematurely. Removal of the mulch at the time of top-dressing stimulated growth. MulchingmulchingSubject Category: Miscellaneous

It was concluded that the high soil-moisture stress beneath a clear polyethylene mulch during the later stages of growth reduces DM production and promotes the premature senescencesenescenceSubject Category: Natural Processes
