The effects of salicylic acid (SA) pretreatment on ascorbate–glutathione (GSH) cycle under chilling stress in eggplant seedlings were investigated. Salicylic acid pretreatment improved chilling resistance of eggplant seedlings with maximum efficiency at a concentration of 0.3%. The chilling injury index was decreased by 36.9% as compared to that of the control after 0.3% SA pretreatment. Under chilling stress, seedlings pretreated with SA displayed lower hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) content and… CONTINUE READING
