The effects of water deficit on relative water content (RWC), on the activity superoxide dismutase (SOD) and peroxidase (POX) from leaves of two drought-resistant barley strains (Hordeum vulgare L.) varieties (TOKAK-157/37 and 56000/MISC-233) and one sensitive (ERGINEL-90) were studied. In 21 day old seedlings, drought stress was initiated by withholding water and lasted for 12 days. Activity of SOD increased by the effect of drought treatments in the leaves of drought-resistant varieties TOKAK… CONTINUE READING
