Physiological Mechanism of Nitrogen Mediating Cotton ( Gossypium hirsutum L . ) Seedlings Growth under Water-Stress Conditions

  title={Physiological Mechanism of Nitrogen Mediating Cotton ( Gossypium hirsutum L . ) Seedlings Growth under Water-Stress Conditions},
  author={Zhigou Zhou and Derrick M. Oosterhuis},
The objective of this investigation was to study the effects of nitrogen on tolerance to water-stress in cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.) seedlings. Growth chamber studies with pots of washed sand were carried out in Fayetteville, USA, and Nanjing, Chinawith three water conditions (well-watered, drought-stressed, and waterlogging), and three nitrogen rates, low nitrogen (16 mM, approximately 224 mg N·l water), medium nitrogen (24 mM, approximately 448 mg N·l water) and high nitrogen (32 mM… CONTINUE READING
