Two castor bean cultivars were subjected to water stress induced by polyethylene glycol 6000 (PEG) under in vitro conditions. After 15 days, a reduced percentage of surviving plants, leaf abscission and greater leaf cuticular wax content were observed, accompanied by reduced water loss through the leaves. PEG also caused a decrease in soluble protein… CONTINUE READING
