Abscisic acid (ABA) is a phytohormone known to regulate leaf gas exchange and water loss by inducing stomatal closure. ABA is synthesised in response to a variety of abiotic stressors in soil, particularly water deficit. Previous work demonstrated that across a range of soil textures, root water potential better predicted xylem ABA concentration than soil matric potential. However, the impacts of soil management practices (e.g. cultivation, compaction, organic matter addition) on the relationship between root water potential and xylem ABA concentration, when texture is held constant, has not been investigated.
