β-Aminobutyric acid (BABA) is known as a nonprotein amino acid that can enhance the capacity of plants to resist various biotic and abiotic stresses. However, the role of BABA in protecting tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum L.) against potassium deficiency is not well understood. In this study, we demonstrated that the appropriate concentration of BABA promoted tobacco growth and enhanced plant tolerance to potassium deficiency. BABA protected tobacco from the reduction in the primary root length and… CONTINUE READING
