The study aimed to adapt the tetrazolium test to assess the viability of atemoya (Annona cherimola Mill. x A. squamosa L.) seeds. The experimental design was completely randomized in 3 x 3 factorial arrangement (tetrazolium ...
Foliar or soil applications of silicon alleviate water-deficit stress of potato plants
(Agronomy Journal, 2014-11-01) [Artigo]
Root-supplied Si is thought to play a role in alleviating the effects of water-deficit stress in several crops. However, little information is known about the contribution of Si, especially foliar application, in the ...
Physiological changes associated with antioxidant enzymes in response to sugarcane tolerance to water deficit and rehydration
(Sugar Tech, 2014) [Artigo]
Water deficit is the main limiting factor for sugarcane yield worldwide. Under this stress, the crop develops adaptive mechanisms that participate in maintaining the plants’ water status. A better understanding of these ...
