EFFECT OF SALICYLIC ACID ON SALINITY STRESS IN COWPEA
This study was conducted to determine the effects of seed soaking in salicylic acid (0.25 mM, 0.50 mM, 0.75 mM, 1.0 mM and control) on the growth and some seedling properties in cowpea (Vigna unguiculata L. Walp) under different NaCl doses (2.5 ds m-1, 5.0 ds m-1, 7.5 ds m-1, 10.0 ds m-1 and control). In this work; seedling length, cotyledon width, cotyledon length, fresh-dry weight, chlorophyll a, chlorophyll b and total chlorophyll were investigated. In result, according to NaCl x SA interaction, seedling length, dry weight, total chlorophyll values changed between 5.05-13.58 cm, 0.055-0.138 g, 1.705-3.690 mg/g fresh weight, respectively.
