Effect of Sodium Nitroprusside (Snp) on Physiological and Biochemical Responses of Sorgum Vulgare Pres Under Salt Stress

Authors(3) :-S. Muthulakshmi, M. Santhi, K. Lingakumar

Salt stress is one of the major abiotic stress in Agriculture which induces morphological, physiological, and biochemical changes in plants, worldwide. This study was carried out to investigate the protective role of exogenous Sodium Nitroprusside (SNP) on alleviation of salt stress in Sorgum vulgare Our results showed that salt stress induced plants significantly decrease in growth characters, total soluble sugars, amino acids while increase in proline content and peroxidase activity. However salt stress induced plant SNP treated samples showed positive effect on growth characters and biochemical constituents. Therefore suitable concentration of SNP could be used as a simple, practical and inexpensive method for modulating the effects of salt stress induced plant.
