    with four soil moisture tension levels, viz. -0.5, -2.5, -5 and -10 bars and two levels each of triacontanol and paclobutrazol were investigated in a greenhouse.

    and stomatal conductance. Plants stressed at -10 bars and treated as control accumulated the lowest chlorophyll content, whereas plants irrigated at -10 bars and treated with 100 ppm paclobutrazol had the lowest photosynthesis, transpiration and stomatal conductance. Plants treated with triacontanol (10 ppm) performed better than those treated with paclobutrazol.
