Interactive Effect of NaCl Salinity and Zinc on Growth and Development of Catharanthus Roseus (L.)

Author : P. V. Gaikwad 1 S. B. Bhamburdekar 2

Date of Publication :16th September 2021

Abstract: Salinity is a major abiotic stress that adversely affect plant growth. In the present investigation the effect of various concentration of NaCl salinity, Zn and their interactive effect on growth of Catharanthus roseus was investigated. The shoot length, root length, total length, number of leaves and leaf area per plant decreased with increasing NaCl concentration and increased with application of zinc. However in interactive effect, Zn mitigates the toxic effects of NaCl, especially with lower concentration of Zn i.e. 5 ppm and 10 ppm as compare to 25 ppm and 50 ppm Zn, which improves growth of Catharanthus roseus.
