Abstract

The effect of light on the rate of ethylene production was monitored using two different techniques—leaf segments incubated in closed flasks versus intact plants in a flow-through open system. Three different plants were used, viz sunflower (Helianthus annuus), tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum), and soybean (Glycine max). Experiments were conducted both in the presence and absence of 1-aminocyclopropane-1-carboxylic acid (ACC).
