Effects of salinity stress on growth in relation to gas exchanges parameters and water status in amaranth (Amaranthus cruentus)

Salinity is a major detrimental abiotic factor for plant growth. The main purpose of this study was to analyse the effects of different NaCl concentrations on growth and some physiological parameters related to gas exchanges and water relations in amaranth (Amaranthus cruentus) plants. Three amaranth plants of some weeks of age from the cultivar ‘Locale’ were exposed in nutrient solution to 0, 30 or 90 mM NaCl (electrical...

Tolerance of Tithonia diversifolia and Chromolaena odorata in heavy metal contaminated soils.

Plant growth and development were investigated from selected dumpsites and simulated-polluted soils with heavy metals were investigated using two plant species: Tithonia diversifolia (Td) and Chromolaena odorata (Co). The plant biomass capabilities in phytoremediation of this plant species had not been fully exploited in Nigeria. The effect of soil heavy metal pollution has been of global concern since plants pass these...

Yield and growth performance of banana (Musa sapientum) varieties under Shewarobit Condition, Amahra Regional State, Ethiopia

Diversification of crops and increasing yield is crucial to endorse food security in Ethiopia. In line with this, Shewa robit is an area where out of the major horticultural crops most of the farmers are engaged in onion production only. Hence, introduction and expansion of other horticultural crops may help to improve the livelihood of the farmers and alleviate malnutrition. To fill the gap in part, an experiment was...

Effect of seaweed extract of Sargassum dentifolium on germination behaviors of bean cultivar (masr-1) under salt stress

Salinity stress is one of the major factors limiting agricultural production. About 20% land worldwide is subjected to salinity stress. Bean (Cv Masr-1) is an important crop occupying a large area in the world. Salt stress affects most aspects of the plant physiology and biochemistry and significantly reduces yield and limit agricultural production worldwide. In the present investigation, an attempt was made to study the...
