Abstract:

Use of herbicides is indispensable for higher production of wheat crop. However, even selective, use of herbicides causes oxidative stress in plant due to production of reactive oxygen species. The aim of this study was to understand oxidative stress caused by herbicide and antioxidant adaptive response of wheat plants. Application of the recommended field dose of butachlor and pendimethalin to 10-days old wheat seedlings significantly increased total phenol content and phenylalanine ammonia lyase enzyme, compared to control, indicating adaptive response of plant to oxidative stress induced by herbicide. Recommended dose of butachlor, also significantly increased phenol oxidase enzyme activity over control whereas, application of the recommended field dose of pendimethalin significantly decreased phenol oxidase enzyme activities compared to control, which may suggest that pendimethalin treatment resulted in severe stress which damaged plant capacity to control the oxidative stress induced by herbicide.


Keywords: Oxidative stress, Antioxidants, Wheat, Total phenol, Phenylalanine ammonia lyase and Phenol oxidase enzyme.
