Acquired Traits Contribute More to Drought Tolerance in Wheat Than in Rice
Effect of methyl viologen (MV) on plant growth in induction and severe stress treatments (10 μM) in both rice (IR64 and Apo) cultivars and the wheat (Weebill) cultivar (Experiment 1). Effect of MV on (a) plant growth, (b) root length, and (c) shoot length measured at the end of the stress period (72 hours after stress imposition). Seedlings from all the treatments were subjected to recovery growth for two days, and (d) root length and (e) shoot length were measured after the recovery period.
