Table 5 Effect of different concentrations of kaolin or K2SO4 under different levels of water holding capacity on lipid peroxidation (μg malondialdehyde/g fresh weight) and antioxidant enzyme activity (g fresh weight/h) of wheat plants after 75 days from sowing (combined analysis of two seasons)

From: Potential role of kaolin or potassium sulfate as anti-transpirant on improving physiological, biochemical aspects and yield of wheat plants under different watering regimes
