Effect of salinity stress on the germination, growth and some physiological activities of black cumin (Nigella sativa L.)


Arab Gulf Journal of Scientific Research 14(2): 445-454
Effect of salinity stress on the germination, growth and some physiological activities of black cumin (Nigella sativa L.)
The effects of different salinities (up to 300 mM NaCl) on germination, growth and some metabolic parameters of N. sativa were studied. Seeds exhibited a good tolerance of salinity up to 150 mM NaCl during in vitro germination. However, fresh and dry weights of shoots and roots, photosynthetic pigment (chlorophylls and carotenoids) contents and leaf area of pot-grown plants supplied with salinized nutrient solution were decreased in treatments of >150 mM NaCl.
