Influence of Brassinosteroids on Wheat Plant (Triticum aestivum L

Eleiwa, M. E., and A. Ibrahim, "Influence of Brassinosteroids on Wheat Plant (Triticum aestivum L", Australian Journal of Basic and Applied Sciences, 2011.


A pot experiment was carried out to study the effect of irrigating saline water at levels (0.2000, 4000 and 6000 ppm NaCl solution and rates of BRs "28-homBL" (0, 50, 100 and 200 mg/L) on chemical components and nutrients status in grains and straw of grains and straw of wheat plant (Triticum aestivum L). Salinity reduced sugar (reducing and non reducing), total carbohydrate and protein percentage of wheat grains while foliar application with BRs significantly increase gradually all the chemical constituents under study as compared with control. In addition foliar application with BRs also significantly increased the concentration and total uptake of macro and micronutrients (N, P, K, Fe, Mn, Zn and Cu) in straw and grains of wheat plants at harvest date.
