INTRODUCTION Cadmium (Cd) in plants interrupts numerous metabolic processes and reduces the water and nutrient uptake that cause chlorosis, growth retardation, and ultimately plant death. Response of Brassica napus L. to calcium (Ca) enrichment in growth medium for reducing Cd toxicity stress by strengthening the photosynthesis organelles and their functionality was explored in this study. MATERIALS AND METHODS B. napus seedlings of two cultivars (ZS 758 and ZS 72) were exposed to Cd toxicity… CONTINUE READING
