Acquired Traits Contribute More to Drought Tolerance in Wheat Than in Rice

Effect of methyl viologen (MV) on scavenging activity in the induction treatment compared to the severe stress treatment (10 μM MV) in both rice (IR64 and Apo) cultivars and the wheat (Weebill) cultivar (Experiment 1). (a) Proline content. (b) Percent increase in antioxidant activity (AA) over the control measured by the DPPH method. (c) Percent increase in superoxide dismutase (SOD) activity over the control measured at the end of the stress period.
