  journal={Plant Growth Regulation},
As a result of rapidly increasing anthropogenic activities, input of varied metal(loids) such as cadmium (Cd) to worldwide agricultural soils and its subsequent accumulation, and obvious toxicity in plants are increasing. The role of mineral nutrients in the mitigation of Cd-accrued consequences in plants has been credibly suggested. In isolated studies, two essential mineral nutrients such as nitrogen (N) and sulfur (S) have been reported to minimize Cd-impacts in plants, and improve overall… CONTINUE READING
