O cultivo de alface no sistema orgânico é crescente no Brasil. No entanto, para ser cultivada no sistema orgânico, faz-se necessário utilizar sementes provenientes de sistema orgânico conforme exigências da legislação brasileira. Atualmente, são escassas pesquisas referentes ao desempenho agronômico e à qualidade fisiológica de sementes de alface n...

Water stress can affect the yield in tomato crops and, despite this, there are few types of research aiming to select tomato genotypes resistant to the water stress using physiological parameters. This experiment aimed to study the variables that are related to the gas exchanges and the efficiency in water use, in the selection of tomato genotypes...

The tomato crop adapts to different climatic conditions. However, the water stress, which is a relevant factor in the tomato cropping, can affect the productivity. This experiment aimed to estimate the genetic variability, after two backcrosses, and select tomato genotypes that are tolerant to water stress induced by mannitol. The advance of the ge...

Little is known about the commercial potential of mini-tomato hybrids obtained from one dwarf parent. Thus, our objective was to evaluate the agronomic performance of mini-tomato hybrids obtained by crossing a dwarf line (A) with normal lines with indeterminate (I), determinate (D) and semi-determinate (SD) growth habits. The experiment was conduct...

... High Pn associated with low gs was observed in water stress tolerant plants which had higher iWUE (Pazzagli et al., 2016). Borba et al. (2017) reported high Pn and low gs and E, and better water use efficiency in F 2 BC1 population of Solanum pennellii x S. lycopersicum cross. Both A1-63/79 and Man-63/79 were better than their respective parents with respect to iWUE. ...
... S. pennellii LA716 is another valuable genetic source conferring tolerance to various biotic and abiotic stresses. For example, it is tolerant to abiotic stresses such as salt (Frary et al., 2010;Li et al., 2010) and drought (Borba et al., 2017), Moreover, LA716 showed high resistance to the obligate parasitic plants (Orobanche aegyptiaca) (El-Halmouch et al., 2006) and Phelipanche aegyptiaca (Bai et al., 2020). While previous work indicated that LA716 has resistance to different biotic stresses such as whitefly (Bemisia tabaci) (Baldin et al., 2005;Oriani and Vendramim, 2010); tomato leaf miner, Tuta absoluta (Bitew, 2018); a bacterial spot disease caused by Xanthomonas campestris pv. ...
... The commercial check is characterized by indeterminate growth habits and Santa Cruz-type red fruits. UFU MC TOM1 used as the DP is a homozygous dwarf strain with indeterminate growth habits and oblong Minitomato-type fruits [8,9]. As the expression of the dwarf phenotype is recessive and monogenic [9], backcrossing was performed to transfer the recessive allele. ...
