Species Referenced: Annona glabra (Pond apple),
AbstractEvaluated the effects of root zone temperature and flooding on the growth of Annona glabra and A. muricata. Annona glabra was more flood tolerant than A. muricata. For A. glabra, optimum growth occurred at root zone temperatures of 25-35 C for non-flooded plants and at 20-25 C for flooded plants.
