Chickpea (Cicer arietinum L. cv. GPF2) and soybean (Glycine max (L.) Merrill cv. Brag) genotypes were subjected to varying water stress levels of -0.2 to -0.8 MPa to assess their relative sensitivity towards water stress. Soybean seedlings experienced significantly more stress injury (as electrolyte leakage) than chickpea at all stress levels. LD 50 in terms of percent germination, root length, and root growth rate occurred at -0.4 MPa in soybean and at -0.6 MPa in chickpea. In chickpea, the… CONTINUE READING
