Effect Of Potassium Nutrition On The Cadmium Toxicity-Induced Oxidative Stress In Spinach

Object description

In this study, the effect of potassium on the cadmium-induced oxidative stres in spinach was tested under hydroponic culture. Plants were grown under controlled climatic conditions at various potassium (50, 250 and 2000 uM) and cadmium (0 and 20 uM Cd) supplies. Cadmium treatment significantly reduced shoots and root dry matter production. Potassium application decreased cadmium concentration both in shoot and root. Cadmium application increased lipid peroxidation both in shoot and root. Suffic...
