Abstract
The influence of light on ozone-induced ethylene production from intact soybean (Glycine max L. Merr. cv. Dare) and tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum Mill. cv. Roma) plants was investigated. Ozone-induced stress ethylene production was 2.6-fold greater from dark-than light-incubated soybean plants at the same encapsulation temperature (i.e. temperature within the encapsulation bag). Dark-incubated tomato plant also produced more ozone-induced stress ethylene than light-incubated plants, but the magnitude of production was less than for soybeans. The observations suggested that the conversion of ACC to ethylene was limited in the light.
