The role of different compatible solutes in plant tolerance to drought stress is significant because they regulate multitude of metabolic processes including ion transport. The present study was therefore conducted to investigate the influence of foliar application of a potential osmoprotectant, proline, on patterns of uptake of some essential macronutrients in water stressed plants of two maize (Zea mays) cultivars. Two week old plants of two maize cultivars, EV-1098 and Agaiti 2002, grown… CONTINUE READING
