Influence of increased K supply on growth and nutrient content in pearl millet (Pennisetum glaucum) under severe water stress was assessed in a pot experiment under glasshouse conditions. Nineteen-day-old plants of two lines, ICMV94133 and WCA-78 were subjected for 30 d to 235, 352.5, and 470 mg(K) kg−1(soil) and two water regimes (100 and 30% field capacity). Increasing soil K supply did not alleviate the adverse effect of water deficit on the growth of two lines of pearl millet. Accumulation… CONTINUE READING
