A study was undertaken to evaluate the salt-tolerant attributes of Cynodon dactylon by comparing it with three varieties of the model glycophyte crop rice (Oryza sativa L.). For cross generic studies, all plants were uprooted and transferred to 0.1× Hoagland solution supplemented with 0, 10, 100, 200 and 500 mM NaCl. All plants were exposed to NaCl shock(More)
Comparative analyses of the responses to NaCl in Cynodon dactylon and a sensitive crop species like rice could effectively unravel the salt tolerance mechanism in the former. C. dactylon, a wild perennial chloridoid grass having a wide range of ecological distribution is generally adaptable to varying degrees of salinity stress. The role of salt exclusion(More)
