Effect of low boron supply in turnip plants under drought stress


Turnip (Brassica rapa L.) plants were grown in Perlite with low (< 2.5 μM) or adequate (25 μM) boron supply under well-watered and drought conditions for 12 weeks. Dry mass of leaves and roots was reduced under drought by about 61 and 56 % in plants supplied adequately with B, while up to 84 and 74 % under B starvation. Drought reduced B content by about 70… (More)
