Types of crop stress
The cultural practices carried out on farm lands to optimise production can cause damage to the plants and their environment if they are carried out improperly.
The use of pesticides, for example, can cause phytotoxicity problems in the plant due to the phytosanitary treatments.
Managing crops can cause physical, physiological and morphological damages.
This can happen during pruning, root damage, etc. When a plant is damaged, its severity does not depend only on the wound itself, but also on the risk of suffering an infection, as the wound can act as a pathway for pathogenic organisms to enter the plant.
