Zinc is the most widespread deficient micronutrient in the tea growing soils of India which affects growth of the plants. In order to investigate the structural, physiological, and biochemical changes under Zn stress (i.e. both deficient and excess supply) of tea [Camellia sinensis (L.) O. Kuntze cv. T-78] plants, we treated young plants with ZnSO4 at 0 (deficiency), 0.3, 3 (optimum), and 30 μM (toxic) concentrations for 8 weeks. Zn deficiency and excess resulted in considerable decrease in… CONTINUE READING
