Synopsis

Synopsis

Stems of top growth clipped field plants of 1 wheat, 3 oats, and 3 barley varieties had vascular bundles more closely arranged and smaller in diameter than those of undipped plants. High temperature (78 F.) reduced stele diameters, number of xylem strands and number of metaxylem vessels. No single causal factor for lodging was isolated although several associations were observed.
