Six cultivars of safflower which were (PI-387820, PI-251978, PI-170274, PI-387821, PI-386174 and Thori-78) grown in net house of NIAB under salinity (10 ds m⁻¹) and drought (60% field capacity) conditions and compared to their oxidative damage and antioxidative responses. Plant samples (leaves) were collected for the determination of malonidialdehyde (MDA), antioxidative enzymes (catalase, ascorbate peroxidase, glutathione reductase, and peroxidase), proline, and photosynthetic pigments… 

Physiological response to drought stress in Camptotheca acuminata seedlings from two provenances

Investigation of the physiological responses of Camptotheca acuminata to different drought stresses indicated that provenance KM may maintain stronger drought tolerance via improvements in water-retention capacity, antioxidant enzyme activity, and membrane integrity.

Chromium Stress Tolerance of a C4 (Zea mays L.) and C3 (Vigna radiata L.) Plants Primed with UV and Gamma-Treated Bacillus subtilis

Mungbean was more sensitive towards stress and treatments, maize had betterroot and shoot fresh weights, root and shoot lengths, proline levels, and MDA and GR activity, and γ and UV irradiation may be adopted in future based upon technical availability.

Salt and drought stresses in safflower: a review

This review discusses on stress tolerance mechanisms in saafflower and strategies are proposed for enhancing drought and salt resistance in safflower.

Membrane transporters and drought resistance – a complex issue

Proteins participating in transmembrane allocations of various molecules in the context of stomatal, cuticular, and root responses, representing a part of the drought resistance strategy are put.
