Relations between changes of ascorbic acid level and the drought resistance of maize seedlings under water stress

Crop Genetic Resources ( 3): 9-11
Relations between changes of ascorbic acid level and the drought resistance of maize seedlings under water stress
Ascorbic acid content, water potential and electrolyte diffusion rate in the leaves were measured in 67 varieties under water stress. Ascorbic acid content fell as the leaf water potential decreased to a certain value.
