Response of tossa jute (Corchorus olitorius L.) salt stressed plants to external application of calcium and potassium

This study focused on the improving effect of external application of calcium and potassium on growth, ions and organic solutes accumulation in tossa jute plants grown under salt stress. Young plants were subjected in pots to ten treatments including the control without NaCl, 120 mM NaCl and a combination of 120 mM NaCl and an addition of 40 or 60 mM CaSO4, CaCl2, K2SO4 or KNO3. Plant growth, sodium, potassium, proline...
