  • Soil Salinity Essay

    concentration, malondialdehyde and hydrogen perocide and activity of salinity stress peroxidase (POD) and catalase (CAT) in eggplant plants under salinity stress. Exogenously applied No increased plant growth significantly both in saline and non-saline conditions. As a consequence of salinity stress, lipid peroxidation, measured in terms of malondialdehyde (MDA) concentration and membrane permeability was decreased by NO. H2O2 concentration was increased by increasing levels of NO. NO also strongly inhibited Na+ and Cl_ accumulation, but stimulated N, P, K, Ca and Mg concentrations of salt stressed canola plants. Conclusion The present investigation suggested that NO, a stress signal could trigger the activation of antioxidants in the plants to alleviate the oxidative damage leading to improvements in physiological attributes for the plant growth under salinity.
