- ... Kallar grass (Leptochloa fusca) is a perennial C4 halophytic species with high salt tolerant. The present research was made to investigate the physio-biochemical characters and transcriptional changes of L. fusca under varying salinity levels (0–600 mM NaCl). The Na⁺ level in shoots and roots increased significantly, whereas the K⁺ content was maintained high in 300 mM NaCl and then declined with ...
