  • The influence of silicon (Si, 3 mM), sodium chloride (NaCl, 135 mM), and Si, 3 mM + NaCl, 135 mM supply on chlorophyll content, photosynthetic activity (CO2 -fixation), the concentration of malondialdehyde (MDA) and H2O2, activities of superoxide dismutase (SOD), catalase (CAT) enzymes, free proline and protein contents were studied in maize seedlings leaves after two month of treatments. The results indicated that silicon partially offset the negative impacts and increased tolerance of maize… CONTINUE READING
