In the present study, the ameliorating effects of 5-aminolevulinic acid (ALA) under cadmium (Cd) stress conditions were studied with special emphasis on root morphology and ultra-structure in oilseed rape. For this purpose, plants were treated hydroponically at three different Cd levels (0, 100, 500μM) and foliar spray of ALA with three concentrations (0, 12.5, 25mg/l) simultaneously. The results showed that foliar application of ALA improved the plant growth, root morphology and reduced the… CONTINUE READING
