Efficacy of exogenous glycine betaine application on sorghum plants grown under salinity stress



Efficacy of exogenous glycine betaine application on sorghum plants grown under salinity stress



Acta Botanica Hungarica 46(3/4): 307-318



A pot experiment was conducted to evaluate the beneficial effect of glycine betaine on the salt tolerance of sorghum (Hybrid 113) plants subjected to 2 salinity levels (125 and 250 mM) for 18 days. Salinity greatly reduced sorghum growth, and this effect was more pronounced at 250 mM than at 125 mM NaCl. The foliar application of glycine betaine at 75 mM mitigated, to some extent, the adverse effects of salinity on sorghum growth.
