BACKGROUND Winter sweet treatment (WST) has been established for cultivating high-quality leafy vegetables during the winter. Although it is known that chilling stress during cold acclimation induces oxidative damage by reactive oxygen species in plant tissues, knowledge about changes in antioxidant activity and compounds during WST in spinach is… CONTINUE READING
