Jatropha curcas L. is a plant with various commercial uses, and drought is an important limiting factor for its distribution and production. In this study, we investigated the role of drought hardening in an increased drought tolerance in J. curcas, and the involvement of osmoregulation and biochemical pathways in this enhanced tolerance. Results show that a drought hardening treatment with 10 % (m/v) polyethylene glycol 6000 for two days significantly increased a survival rate, decreased the… CONTINUE READING
