Improving drought and salinity tolerance in barley by application of salicylic acid and potassium nitrate
Growth and physiological activities of barley (_Hordeum vulgare_ L. cv. Gustoe) grown in soil cultures were evaluated to recognize the ameliorative role of salicylic acid (SA) and KNO3 against the negative effects of salt and water deficit stresses. Barley plants were subjected to three levels of NaCl (50, 100 and 150 mM), three levels of water stress (80%, 70% and ... Read more
