  • Silicon (Si) is a beneficial element to higher plants. Its effects frequently linked to physiological, morphological, nutritional, and molecular aspects in plants. This study aimed to measure the compounds linked to oxidative stress and cell damages, besides to evaluate the consequences of exogenous Si application on photosynthetic pigments in maize plants (hybrid 30F53YH Pioneer). The experiment employed an entirely randomized design with two silicon treatments (0 and 2 mM Si). The experiment… CONTINUE READING
