Silicon (Si) has not been accepted as an essential element; although its beneficial role in plants against abiotic and biotic stresses is well known. In this regard an experiment was designed to optimize suitable Si dose among four different concentration (control, 100, 200 and 300 ppm) applied via rooting medium as soil treatment under saline (200...

Salt stress obstructs plant’s growth by affecting metabolic processes, ion homeostasis and over-production of reactive oxygen species. In this regard silicon (Si) has been known to augment a plant’s antioxidant defense system to combat adverse effects of salinity stress. In order to quantify the Si-mediated salinity tolerance, we studied the role o...
Chapter
The significance of medicinal plants for humans have been established since ancient times for curing diseases and ailments of themselves and domesticated animals based on their traditional knowledge. In recent years, the demand for medicinal plants has been increased and resulted in their enhanced cultivation. However, the production of medicinal p...

The present investigation was committed to examining the effect of soil spiked with diesel contamination (0, 1.5, 2.5, 3.5 g diesel kg⁻¹ soil) on maize (Zea mays L) varieties (MMRI yellow and Pearl white) with or without bacterial consortium (Pseudomonas aeruginosa BRRI54, Acinetobacter sp. strain BRSI56, Acinetobacter sp. strain ACRH80). Seed and...

Contamination of soils with heavy metals (HMs) caused serious problems because plants tend to absorb HMs from the soil. In view of HM hazards to plants as well as agro-ecosystems, we executed this study to assess metal toxicity to mung bean (Vigna radiata) plants cultivated in soil with six treatment levels of cadmium (Cd) and nickel (Ni) and to fi...

Objectives Chlorophyll-a fluorescence is an efficient tool to determine the photosynthetic capacity of plants and the health status of plants under normal or stress conditions including salinity stress. This study was aimed to elucidate changes in the efficiency of photosystem II (PSII) in barley genotypes differing in degree of salt tolerance, whi...
Article
Crop productivity is limited by several environmental constraints. Among these, salt stress plays a key role in limiting the growth and yield production of economically important agricultural crops. However, the exogenous fertigation of vitamins and minerals could serve as a “shot-gun” approach for offsetting the deleterious effects of salts presen...
Chapter
In the recent past, much interest has been generated for the commercial application of plant growth regulators in cotton production, especially in the eventual threat to climate change. Since the 1950s, a number of plant growth regulators are in use to improve quantity and quality of cotton produce. These substances are organic ones, unlike inorgan...

The presence of significant amount of heavy metals in rivers and canals due to mixing of untreated industrial effluents is a common phenomenon, especially in developing countries. The agricultural crops are influenced by the presence of various pollutants in the sewage, being applied for irrigation purpose. The effluents containing copper affect th...
