Melatonin mediates many physiological processes in plants. We investigated its role in regulating growth, potassium uptake, and root system architecture under three types of stress: salinity or a deficiency of all nutrients in Malus hupehensis Rehd., as well as a K deficiency in Malus rockii Rehd. Each treatment caused a reduction in growth rates and disrupted the absorption of potassium. However, pretreatment with 0.1 mmol/L melatonin significantly alleviated such inhibitions. The addition of… CONTINUE READING
