In this work we present evidence that the drought stress syndrome in the flag leaves and ears of wheat plants, provoked by the production of ethylene (shortening the grain filling period and lowering the grain weight) is reversed by the application of a free radical scavenger, sodium benzoate or the ethylene synthesis inhibitor, aminoethoxyvinylglycine. Rehydration by watering also attenuated the detrimental effect of the water deficit. Consequently, the grain filling period was longer, the… CONTINUE READING
