Compost can enhance water holding capacity and fertility of soil and thus increase soil water availability and nutrient uptake by plants, but it is not clear whether it can also improve the ability of plants to recover after salinity stress. Quinoa plant was grown in soil with or without compost either with foliar spray Nigella sativa extract (25 & 50%) or ascorbic acid (200 mg/l). Irrigation plant with saline water with different concentrations (0.0, 4000 and 8000 mg/l). Salinity stress led to… Expand

Alleviation of the adverse effects of salinity stress using trehalose in two rice varieties
Soaking rice seeds with 25 mM of trehalose (Tre) could alleviate the harmful effects of salinity stress, and a higher solute concentration contributing to osmotic adjustment and the higher antioxidant enzymes activity were observed in shoots ofSalinity treated Giza 178 than those of Giza 177.

Salinity-induced changes in essential oil, pigments and salts accumulation in sweet basil (Ocimum basilicum) in relation to alterations of morphological development.
Overall, the stress induced increase of the percent of essential oil in the tissue in the salinity range 1–75 mM NaCl was about 50%, and thereby compensated for the similar reduction of biomass production in this salinityrange, so that oil production on per plant basis was not reduced by salinity.
