Comparative Response of Two Rice (Oryza sativa L.) Cultivars to Applied Zinc and Manganese for Mitigation of Salt Stress
Soil salinity, together with zinc (Zn) and manganese (Mn) deficiencies, adversely affects rice growth and yield. The comparative salinity stress mitigation response of rice to Zn or Mn remains
Leaf cell membrane stability-based mechanisms of zinc nutrition in mitigating salinity stress in rice.
The results showed that Zn alone (Zn10) significantly increased rice tolerance to salinity stress by promoting Zn/K+ retention, inhibiting plant Na+ uptake and enhancing leaf cell membrane stability and chlorophyll formation in both rice cultivars in native alkaline, Zn-deficient soils.
