The effect of silicon (Si) on salinity-induced oxidative damages of cucumber was investigated in a greenhouse experiment. Two cucumber cultivars (Cucumis sativus L. cvs. Negin and Super Dominus) were exposed to two salinity levels (0 and 50 mM NaCl) and two Si levels (0 and 1 µM). Silicon stimulated shoot growth of cucumber particularly under saline conditions. Leaf malondialdehyde (MDA) content was increased in ‘Super Dominus’ while it remained unchanged in ‘Negin’ by salt stress. MDA content… CONTINUE READING
