- ... The present work examines benzoic acid (BA) induced stress in Solanum lycopersicum and explores the possible mechanism through which sodium nitroprusside (SNP) protects plants. Tomato seeds were soaked for 3 h in 250 µM SNP and 0.5, 1.0, and 1.5 mM BA with and without SNP. Seeds soaked in distilled water were treated as control. Seed germination (SG) and radicle length (RL) were recorded in Petri ...
