Riedhart University of Miami Coral Gables, Fla. Introduction The general effects of petroleum spray oils on photosynthesis and respiration in citrus have been reported by various workers (15, 26, 27, 36). Using iodine as a test for starch Knight et al. (15) measured the effect of saturated petroleum oils on photosynthesis and respiration of citrus leaves by painting oil on both surfaces of leaves that had been kept in the dark for 15 days. He found that those leaves treated with an oil having a viscosity of 106 seconds had not re turned to normal starch synthesis at the end of forty days. The leaves treated with an oil having a viscosity of 50 seconds returned to nor mal in four days. Using a carbon dioxide absorptiontitration method, the same workers found the respiration rate of leaves with oilpainted surfaces showed a significant stimulation; while the same oils applied as a spray demonstrated a similar effect, it was not to the same degree. Wedding et al. (37) using a manometric tech nique measured the effects of a 2% California mediumgrade emulsivetype spray oil on Wash ington Navel orange leaves and Eureka lemon leaves. Photosynthesis and respiration were sig nificantly depressed in orange leaves the day fol lowing the application of the oil, but recovery oc curred with time. Lemon leaves showed a similar effect for photosynthesis, but respiration was affected only slightly and the depression of the rate was not significant. Recovery of photosyn thesis occurred more rapidly in lemon plants than in orange plants. Riehl and Wedding (27) measured the effects of hydrocarbon composition and molecular size of various oils on inhibition of photosynthesis in Bearss lime and Eureka lemon leaves by the Warburg procedure. They noted that ultraviolet light was not an important factor in the effect of California lightmedium or medium grade spray oils on the photosynthesis of citrus leaves following applications at levels of oil necessary to control citrus pests. Recovery of photosyn thesis occurred in less time in plants sprayed with naphthenic oils than in those sprayed with paraffinic oils. In a later paper, Riehl and Wed ding (28) reported that the difference in rate of recovery of photosynthesis associated with the difference in paraffinicity in greater for oils of comparable viscosity than for those of com parable molecular weight. The present investigation was initiated in order to determine the effects of pure hydro carbons and a typical spray oil on photosynthesis and respiration of citrus leaves. Materials and Methods Leaves from threeyearold nurserygrown trees of Citrus sinensis, Osbeck, variety Valencia, were used as the source of plant material. The oils used were practical grade dodecane, tridecane, tetradecane, hexadecane, octadecane, one part octadecane to two parts dodecane mix ture, and a typical oil. The properties of the hydrocarbons used are listed in Table I. The oils were applied to the dorsal (lower) or ven tral (upper) surfaces of the leaves using a set tling tower with a shutter at the base to control the amount of oil (22). The amount of oil de posited and volatilized was determined gravimetrically using aluminum paper strips (20).

Diagram of the arrangement for multipoint sampling system with continuous purge. Determinations of photosynthesis and respira tion were made using continuous infrared CO2 analysis with a multipoint sampling system (21). Air from the atmosphere, regulated by fine metering valves at thirty liters per hour, was passed over leaves placed in water cooled plastic chambers, through a dririte drying column, a flow meter, and a Hartmann Braun URAS In frared CO2 analyzer. An automatic switching unit permitted sequential sampling from several leaf chambers or sampling points. A purge pump maintained a constant flow at thirty liters per hour over the leaves not being channelled through the analyzer, Figure 1. Apparent photosynthesis was measured by the amount of CO2 in ppm removed from the air stream in the light and respiration was meas ured by the amount of CO2 in ppm produced in the dark. The oil treatments and all experiments were conducted at ambient room temperature, while the gas from the test and control leaves was analyzed at 54 C. The results were recorded in ppm. The light source, artificial, was adjusted to obtain maximum apparent photosynthesis of each leaf. The leaves being analyzed were illuminated from 8:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M. True photosyn thesis was not determined. All experiments were repeated several times with only minor variations in results which were not considered statistically significant.

Lines have been extrapolated through the dark period. of dodecane, and tetradecane, while for hexadecane and octadecane a lag occurred between the time of application and maximum inhibition of photosynthesis. Inhibition also occurred im mediately after application of mixed oils (one part octadecane to two parts dodecane). In the case of the typical spray oil, the depression was preceded by a period of slight stimulation. The degree of inhibition of photosynthesis of the leaves treated with the typical spray oil was further increased by the application of dodecane. These leaves showed no signs of recovery through out the experimental period. The reason for the difference in the initial activity produced by the typical oil, and the de pression effect of an application of a lighter hydrocarbon following the application of a heavy hydrocarbon has not yet been investigated, al though it is probably a matter of rate of pene tration of the various fractions. Not shown by the figures, but worthy of mention, is the obser vation that oilsprayed leaves as compared with unsprayed leaves exhibited a lag attaining maxi mum photosynthesis upon illumination. This phenomenon occurred only with pure hydrocar bons of a distillation range of 419 to 487 F. The correlation of the recovery from the in itial depression of apparent photosynthesis with the dissipation of the various hydrocarbons from the leaves is obvious (Figs. 2 & 3). The slight discrepancies in the correlation can be accounted for by the fact that the dissipation of oil from leaves occurs more slowly than it does from aluminum paper strips. TABIE 1.

Solid line represents evaporation of oil from aluminum paper strips, Mg/cm. Lines have been extrapolated through light periods. Inhibition of apparent photosynthesis was not obtained with the application of hydrocarbons on the ventral (upper) surface, Fig. 3. The effect of various hydrocarbons on respira tion is shown in Figure 4. Respiration is ex pressed as ppm CO2 evolved in the dark. Oil de posits are expressed in ^,g/cm2. The measure ments of respiration are from the same leaf samples that were utilized throughout the light period. All leaves treated on the dorsal (lower) surface demonstrated some change in respiration. Those leaves treated with the pure hydrocarbons having a distillation range from 419 to 487 F and the mixed oil (one part octadecane to two parts dodecane) showed a significant increase while those treated with the oils of a distillation range of 552 F or higher showed a definite in crease. This stimulation of oxygen uptake was also reported by Knight et ah (15), Green and Johnson (9), Green (10), and others. Oil penetration was determined on the basis of its ability to influence photosynthesis and respiration. Measured this way there was no penetration, throughout the experimental period, of the ventral surface of the leaves by the pure hydrocarbons and the typical oil. The only instance of ventral (upper) penetration was in an experiment, shown in Figure 3, where an excess of dodecane was applied to a leaf that previously had received an application of typical spray oil. The inhibition, however, was only temporary and the leaf recovered upon the dis sipation of the dodecane. The most obvious sur face to be penetrated by all of the hydrocarbons was the dorsal (lower) surface, Figure 2, where most of the stomata of citrus are located, (19). The pure hydrocarbons, having a distillation range of 419 to 487 F, exhibited a faster rate of penetration than those with a higher distilla tion range.

6 20 FLORIDA STATE HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY, 1964 In all instances the application of oils in these experiments showed no visual symptoms of leaf injury usually attributed to their use. Discussion The results of the present investigation indi cate unequivocally that the application of petro leum oil to a leaf, providing there is penetration, inhibits photosynthesis. This is in agreement with earlier studies of Green and Johnson (9) on beans, Green (10) on bean, apple and barley, Knight et al. (15) on citrus, Riedhart (20) on bananas and (22) on Bauhinia, Riehl (25) on lemon and lime, Riehl and Wedding (28) on lemon, and Wedding et al. (37) on citrus. Of added significance from the present investigation is the fact that inhibition was shown to occur with the application of minute amounts of oil and under normal concentration of CO2 in air. In regard to the magnitude and the duration of inhibition, the present investigation indicates a direct relationship to the amount of oil initially deposited and its eventual dissipation from the leaf. This is in agreement with the observations of Reidhart (20, 22), and Riehl and Wedding (27). The transitory stimulation of apparent photosynthesis obtained in the case of the typical spray oil can be attributed to solubilization phe nomenon, as suggested by Van Overbeek and Blondeau (36), because of the aromatics present in the oil. This observation assists in explaining some of the discrepancies between the results of earlier investigations. It is quite likely that had a time factor concerning penetration been considered in earlier studies the results would be in closer agreement. The data accumulated here in regard to the influence of petroleum on respiration is in par tial agreement with that of Green (10), Helson and Minshall (12), and Wedding et al. (37). Oils having. a distillation range of 487 F or lower brought a stimulation of respiration while those having a distillation range of 552 F or higher brought a decrease in respiration. As with apparent photosynthesis the minor discrepancies with previous results probably arise from con sideration of the time factor and hydrocarbon types. The contrast of the results obtained with the application of a hydrocarbon on the dorsal (lower) surface versus the ventral (upper) sur face suggests that penetration occurs only on the lower surface. Since corollary to this is the fact that stomata occur only on the dorsal (lower) surface in citrus, it can be postulated that, at the levels of oil used in these experiments, pene tration occurs through the stomata and not through the cuticle. Consideration of varia tions in the amount of hydrocarbons, variations in plant material, and physical properties of hydrocarbons, this postulation is consistent with the results of Calpouzos et al. (1), Calpouzos and Colberg (2), Crafts and Reiber (5), De Ong (6, 7), Griffiths and Janes (11), Helson and Minshall (12), Hoffman (13), Johnson and Hoskins (14), Minshall and Helson (17), Reidhart (20), Riehl and Wedding (27, 28), Schroeder (30), Tucker (35), and Wedding et ah (37). In regard to the mechanism of action of oil on apparent photosynthesis, the results corrobo rate the hypothesis that inhibition results from mechanical interference of gaseous exchange as reported by Helson and Minshall (12), Riedhart (20, 22), Riehl and Wedding (27, 28), Rohrbaugh (29) and Wedding et al. (37). It is of interest to note that a similar action has been hypothe sized in order to explain the lethal action of oil on insects (4), (6), (8), (16), (18), (23), (33), insect eggs (3), (18), (24), (31), and fungi (1), (34). The complete recovery from inhibition upon dissipation of the oil supports the postulation of Van Overbeek and Blondeau (36) in that no solubilization occurs with molecules as large as those of foliage spray oils. This is also in agree ment with the studies of Riehl and Wedding (27) and Riedhart (20, 22). Contributing to the selection and the more discriminate use of petroleum oils in agriculture, the data suggest that more attention be given to the distillation range and coincidentally to its evaporation rate. By placing more emphasis on the distillation range, oils may be more carefully selected in order that the deposit is just sufficient to effect control of the pest while remaining be low the level that produces plant injury, as sug gested by Smith (32). Phytotoxicity, as measured by the influence of petroleum oil on photosynthesis and respiration probably cannot be avoided; however, equilibrat ing this factor against the economic advantages of using petroleum oils to control plant pests, it can hardly be considered detrimental to their continued use.
