Safflower (Carthamus tinctorius L.) leaves are a good source of natural antioxidants, but their content is highly related to the plant response to NaCl constraint; therefore, optimizing culture conditions is required to improve leaf antioxidant accumulation while maintaining acceptable biomass production under stressful conditions. Leaves from plants grown… CONTINUE READING
