Four-day-old rice (Oryza sativa L.) seedlings were subjected to varying temperatures of 30/20, 35/25, and 42/37 °C [light/dark (15/9 h); light intensity: 350 μmol m−2 s−1, RH 65–70 %] in glass Petri dishes for 10 days in the absence (control) or the presence of γ-aminobutyric acid (GABA) 1 mM under the controlled conditions of a growth chamber. With rise in temperature, the length of both shoots and roots was inhibited severely and there was a marked decrease in survival, especially at 42/37 °C… CONTINUE READING
