Increased salt stress tolerance
Agro-Lig treated Cucumber grown in salt stress conditions (3 levels: 0, 28 and 56 mmol/kg soil) had a higher fruit yield, a slightly higher Na content (significant more in the leaves), an equal Cl content, an equal N content, an equal K content, an equal P content, an equal Ca content, an equal Mg content (significant more in the leaves), a higher Fe content, a higher Zn content and a higher Mn content in leaves and roots as compared to the untreated control plants in the same salt stress conditions.
