- ... Autotoxicity in plants limits their growth and that of nearby plants of the same species, which has obvious implications in crop yield and quality. Silicon (Si) has been shown to increase plant tolerance to autotoxic stress. However, the physiological mechanisms underlying the effects of Si in alleviating autotoxicity during germination in cucumber (Cucumis sativus L.) are unknown. Cinnamic acid d ...
