Excess salt affects about 955 million ha of arable land worldwide, and 49% of agricultural land is Zn-deficient. Soil salinity and zinc deficiency can intensify plant abiotic stress. The mechanisms by which Zn can mitigate salinity effects on plant functions are not well understood. We conducted an experiment to determine how Zn and salinity effects on rice plant retention of Zn, K+ and the salt ion Na+ affect chlorophyll formation, leaf cell membrane stability and grain yield. We examined the…

Exogenously applied zinc and copper mitigate salinity effect in maize (Zea mays L.) by improving key physiological and biochemical attributes
F foliar application of Zn and Cu circumvented salinity effect on water relations, photosynthesis, and nutrition and this was attributed to the better antioxidant system and enhanced accumulation of glycine betaine, proline, total free amino acids, and sugars.
Foliar Application of Nano-zinc and Iron Affects Physiological Attributes of Rosmarinus officinalis and Quietens NaCl Salinity Depression
Salinity is an obstacle for plant growth and the exploitation of means like cation foliar to soften the negative effects is of interest. The impacts of NaCl salinity (0, 75, 150, and 225 mM) and
Nano Zinc-Oxide Enhanced Photosynthetic Apparatus and Photosystem Efficiency of Maize (Zea Mays L.) in Sandy-Acidic Soils
Conventional Zinc (Zn) fertilization (e.g., zinc sulfate) often leads to poor availability in soils. Zinc oxide nanoparticles (nano ZnO) can be a potential solution, but their effect on crop
Silicon and zinc nanoparticles-enriched miscanthus biochar enhanced seed germination, antioxidant defense system, and nutrient status of radish under NaCl stress
ABSTRACT Context. Soil salinity mitigation with nanoparticles enriched biochar (Bc) can be a better strategy to resolve the uprising threat against food security. Aim. The present study was designed
Osmolyte Accumulation and Sodium Compartmentation Has a Key Role in Salinity Tolerance of Pistachios Rootstocks
Physio-biochemical responses of pistachio varieties including Pistacia vera L. ‘Ghazvini’ (GH), P. vera ‘Ghermez-Pesteh’ (GP) and P. atlantica subsp. mutica (M) were assessed under salt stress to
Shoot and root growth of rice seedlings as affected by soil and foliar zinc applications
Abstract The present study investigated how foliar zinc (Zn) application affects seedling growth and Zn concentration of rice grown in a Zn-deficient calcareous soil with different soil Zn
A quantitative approach for fertilizer recommendation under saline conditions
New deterministic models for fertilizer recommendation in salt-affected soils integrating salinity and fertility models can reasonably well estimate the required fertilizer quantity to achieve the yield goal under certain soil salinity.
The Effect of Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Fungi on Photosystem II of the Host Plant Under Salt Stress: A Meta-Analysis
As important components of the photosynthetic apparatus, photosystems I (PS I) and II (PS II) are sensitive to salinity. Salt stress can destroy the PS II reaction center, disrupt electron transport


Improving zinc bioavailability in transition from flooded to aerobic rice. A review
Current knowledge of Zn bioavailability is described as affected by changes in soil–plant interactions caused by the transition from flooded to aerobic rice cultivation, which may affect Zn mobilization and uptake.
Effect of Different Micronutrient Treatments on Rice (Oriza sativa L.) Growth and Yield under Saline Soil Conditions
2 Abstract: Field trials were conducted in El Serw Agricultural Research Station, Agriculture Research Center, Egypt during 2009 and 2010 summer seasons to study the effect of Zn , Fe and Mn as
Zinc in plants.
The dominant fluxes of Zn in the soil-root-shoot continuum are described, including Zn inputs to soils, the plant availability of soluble Zn(2+) at the root surface, and plant uptake and accumulation of ZN.
Zinc Requirement for Stomatal Opening in Cauliflower
Observations indicate involvement of Zn in stomatal opening, possibly as a constituent of carbonic anhydrase needed for maintaining adequate [HCO3-] in the guard cells, and also as a factor affecting K+ uptake by theGuard cells.
Effect of salinity and foliar application of iron and zinc on yield and water use efficiency of Ajowan (Carum copticum )
Salinity of soil and water resources is the major problems of agriculture in Iran. In saline conditions, the availability of nutrients in soil solution is reduced and leads to disruption of plant
Effects of indole-3-acetic acid and zinc on the growth, osmotic potential and soluble carbon and nitrogen components of soybean plants growing under water deficit.
Three-week old soybean (Glycine max) plants were subjected to a factorial combination of four regimes of soil matric water potential (ψm=−0·03, −0·5, −1·0 and −1·5 MPa), two levels of supplementary
Effect of Salinity on Growth Parameters, Soil Water Potential and Ion Composition in Cucumis melo cv. Huanghemi in North‐Western China
A field trial conducted on the melon cultivar Huanghemi irrigated with saline water was carried out in Minqin County in the 2-year period, 2007 and 2008. In three irrigation treatments, different
Micronutrient status of calcareous paddy soils and rice products: implication for human health
Modern agricultural systems have to provide enough micronutrient output to meet all the nutritional needs of people. Accordingly, knowledge on micronutrient status in soil and crop edible tissues is
Leaf K/Na ratio predicts salinity induced yield loss in irrigated rice
A screening system for salinity resistance of rice, particularly in arid and semi-arid climates, is proposed based on the correlation between K/NaLeaves under salinity and salinity-induced yield losses.
