Parameters Response of Salt-Silicon Interactions in Wheat

Mehmet Hanifi Akgün, Nuray Ergün *


Wheat is the most important plant in the history of mankind, especially in terms of nutrition, by increasing its resistance from the past to the present. The negative change in the environmental conditions increases the stress factors in the soil and seriously affects agricultural productivity. Some physiological analyzes were carried out to examine salt, silicon and salt-silicon interactions on wheat seedlings. In the present study salt, silicon, salt–silicon and their interactions were investigated on wheat (Triticum aestivum L cv. Dağdaş and ES-14). Root dry weight, shoot dry weight, shoot and root length. In our study; Si increased shoot dry matter and weight in 200 mM salt+ Si treatment.


Root dry weight, shoot dry weight, shoot length, root length.
