Drought stress is an important environmental stress that clearly affect biological systems of plants. There is a possibility that growth regulators are able to protect plants under drought conditions. Ascorbic acid (AsA) plays a particular role on growth of plants and protects cells from oxidative damage caused by environmental stresses. This study emphasized the impacts of AsA on improving the drought tolerance of the pepper plants. Based on a factorial arrangement in a completely randomized… 

Beneficial effects of abscisic acid and melatonin in overcoming drought stress in cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.).

Hormones combined application caused higher ascorbate peroxidase activity than single hormone, suggesting that their combination synergistically improved the ability of AsA to eliminate ROS.

The effect of exogenously applied plant growth regulators and zinc on some physiological characteristics and essential oil constituents of Moldavian balm (Dracocephalum moldavica L.) under water stress.

It is demonstrated that foliar application of Zn and SA significantly improves EO productivity and quality in Moldavian balm under moderate water stress, and irrigation regime had main effect on the essential oil compounds and biochemical and physiological parameters.

Whole plant response of Pongamia pinnata to drought stress tolerance revealed by morpho-physiological, biochemical and transcriptome analysis

Pongamia is considered an important biofuel species worldwide. Drought stress in the early growth stages of Pongamia influences negatively on the germination and seedling development. Due to lack of

Nanobiotechnological Approaches to Enhance Drought Tolerance in Catharanthus roseus Plants Using Salicylic Acid in Bulk and Nanoform

Drought has a detrimental effect on crop production, affecting economically important plants’ growth rates and development. Catharanthus roseus is an important medicinal plant that produces many

Variation of Bio-Morphometric Traits and Antioxidant Compounds of Brassica oleracea L. Accessions in Relation to Drought Stress

Drought tolerance of Brassica crops can be genetically improved by establishing plant ideotypes with improved yield responses associated with agronomic traits and biochemical markers. The objective

Exogenous application of melatonin may contribute to enhancement of soybean drought tolerance via its effects on glucose metabolism

A plant biological regulator, sugar metabolism is among the most important metabolic processes in soybean; it not only affects growth and development, but also plays a role in drought resistance.

Ascorbic acid regulates nitrogen, energy, and gas exchange metabolisms of alfalfa in response to high-nitrate stress

The effects of exogenous ascorbic acid (AsA) on the growth parameters, nitrogen metabolism, energy status, and photosynthetic gas exchange in alfalfa under high-nitrate stress were studied. The

Stable Soil Moisture Improves the Water Use Efficiency of Maize by Alleviating Short-Term Soil Water Stress

Weaker temporal variation of soil moisture can improve crop water use efficiency (WUE), but its physiological mechanism was still unclear. To explore the mechanism, an organized experiment was

Pure Organic Active Compounds Against Abiotic Stress: A Biostimulant Overview

The state of the art regarding various families of organic compounds and their mode/mechanism of action as BSs are summarized, and how they can help maximise agricultural yields under stress conditions aggravated by climate change is summarized.



Foliar application of ascorbate enhances the physiological and biochemical attributes of maize (Zea mays L.) cultivars under drought stress

F foliar application of AsA alleviated the detrimental effects of drought stress in maize plants by improving the antioxidative defense system, and the cultivar EV-1098 was found to be relatively resistant to drought stress.

The interaction between drought stress and salicylic and ascorbic acids on some biochemical characteristics of Satureja hortensis

It seemed that two external acids were able to enhance the tolerant ability of the plant to aridity stress, in the presence of both salicylic and ascorbic acids.

Evaluation of interaction effect of drought stress with ascorbate and salicylic acid on some of physiological and biochemical parameters in okra (Hibiscus esculentus L.).

It is concluded that salicylic acid and ascorbic acid in the concentration 1 mM have in mitigation of stress caused by drought stress.

Effect of exogenous application of ascorbic acid on physiological and biochemical characteristics of wheat under water stress

Wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) is widely cultivated in the Mediterranean zone where plantsgenerally suffer from water stress during heading and reproductive stages. This research wascarried out at the

Regulation of some biochemical attributes in drought-stressed cauliflower (Brassica oleracea L.) by seed pre-treatment with ascorbic acid

Overall, a pre-sowing treatment of cauliflower seed with 75 or 150 mg l–1 AsA improved seedling tolerance to drought stress in both cultivars, which could be attributed to AsA-induced decreases in RMP and H2O2 concentrations, increases in the activities of CAT and SOD, increased RWC, and higher total phenolic compound, proline, GB, and AsA concentrations.

Effect of Water Stress, Ascorbic Acid and Spraying Time on Some Morphological and Biochemical Composition of Ocimum basilicum plant.
