Saline stress is one of the most deleterious abiotic stress determining a considerable reduction in agricultural production. Seed germination is the primitive plant growth stage and considered as vulnerable to saline stress. However, the exogenous application of natural plant growth regulators has been reported as one of the mitigation strategies. A Petri dish experiment under controlled conditions was conducted at King Saud University. The aim was to quantify the negative impact of induced saline str…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
