In a pot-soil culture ameliorative effect of sulphur (S) (0 or 40 mg S kg−1 soil) on cadmium (Cd) (0, 25, 50 and 100 mg Cd kg−1 soil)-induced growth inhibition and oxidative stress in mustard (Brassica campestris L.) cultivar Pusa Gold was studied. Cadmium at 100 mg kg−1 soil caused maximum increase in the contents of Cd and thiobarbituric acid reactive substances (TBARS) in leaves. Maximum reductions in growth (plant dry mass, leaf area), chlorophyll content, net photosynthetic rate (PN) and… CONTINUE READING
