Shortening the juvenile period for citrus crops to improve food stability

Shortening the juvenile period for citrus crops to improve food stability ToFT and AtFT promote early flowering in transgenic and transgrafted tomato. (a) Phenotypes of 35S:ToFT transgenic tomato. (b) Number of days to flowering and number of internodes in 35S:ToFT transgenic tomato and the control from seed sowing to flowering. Fifteen plants of each genotype were used for statistical analysis. Error bars represent ± SE (n = 15). (c) Phenotypes of 35S:AtFT transgenic tomato. (d) Number of days to flowering and number of internodes in 35S:AtFT transgenic tomato and the control from seed sowing to flowering. (e–f) Phenotype of wild-type juvenile tomato scions grafted onto 35S:ToFT (e) and 35S:AtFT transgenic tomato (f) rootstocks. (g) The flowering time of wild-type juvenile tomato scions grafted onto 35S:AtFT and 35S:AtFT transgenic tomato rootstocks. Each grafting combination included 12 individual plants for statistical analysis. Error bars represent ± SE (n = 12). ToFT#1, ToFT#18, and ToFT#19 represent three 35S:ToFT transgenic tomato lines. AtFT#1, AtFT#4, and AtFT#6 represent three 35S:AtFT transgenic tomato lines. Asterisks signify significant differences: **P
