Table 2 Effect of trehalose at 0 mM (Tre 0), 10 mM (Tre 1), and 50 mM (Tre 2) on growth parameters of wheat plants irrigated with tap water (S0) or diluted sea water at 6.25 dS/m (S1). Results are means of two successive seasons

From: Physiological role of trehalose on enhancing salinity tolerance of wheat plant
