Eggplant High Temperature Tolerance: A Brief Review

May 2, 2020 Agricultural Sciences 0

In Northeastern Brazil, eggplant production is drastically reduced, especially when the flowering and fruiting season coincide with the high temperatures. Therefore, it is necessary that strategies for genotype evaluation and selection in the face of high temperatures should be adopted in field, screen mesh and/or greenhouse tests, based on traits associated with high temperature tolerance, aiming to obtain genotypes adapted to regions where high temperature is the limiting factor. This book chapter provides information on selection based on morphological traits associated with high temperature tolerance: FFI – fruit fixation index, NFP – number of fruits per plant, PP – production per plant and PV – pollen viability, evaluated in genotypes of eggplant in field and greenhouse tests under natural high temperature conditions in Northeastern Brazil, aiming to generate information for future eggplant breeding programs for high temperature tolerance
