Plant growth regulators from species differing in salt tolerance as affected by soil salinity

Abstract

The effect of soil salinity on the level of growth regulators from species differing in salt tolerance was studied. It was found that NaCl salinity, as compared to non-saline control, increased the level of growth inhibitors in the leaves of Zea mays which completely neutralized the presence of growth promoting substances. The leaves of Suaeda fructicosa growing in saline soil indicated the presenced of ‘Inhibitor-A’ and ‘Inhibitor-B’ whose growth retarding properties were similar to that of the inhibitors obtained from maize leaves. re]19750512
