But should breeding strategies to deliver high yielding highly water use efficient varieties under water limiting conditions, be selecting for enhanced ABA accumulation? While ABA accumulation may actually increase WUE (in terms of its effects on stomatal limitation), WUE based on yield biomass is likely to be reduced due to the reduced growth rates which accompany ABA accumulation in leaves. Such a striking disparity between drought adaptation and WUE in terms of economic yield, therefore questions the relevance of programmes selecting for enhanced ABA accumulation as a trait to deliver high yielding drought resistant genotypes.
