Changes In Biomass Gain, Protein Content And Hormonal Levels In Wheat Kernels In Response To Soil Drench With Sodium Salicylate
MetadataShow full item record
Drenching of soil with sodim salycylate (800,4000 and 8000mg/l) increased grain f. wt. and d. wt. Protein content was increased in grains at days 23 and 60 with 800 mg/1 salicylate. With higher doses "4000 and 8000mg/l protein increased during grain filling. Sodium salicylate increased significantly the ABA content in grains compared to control. A significant decrease in auxins and gibberellins in grains was noticed in sodium salicylate- treated plants, except with 800mg/l which increased gibbereilins at day 80. Cytokinin content was also increased in ripened grains with all concentrations used.
