Amelioration of lead toxicity by 24-epibrassinolide in rose-scented geranium [Pelargonium graveolens (L.) Herit], a potential agent for phytoremediation

S Seeta Ram Rao and K Raghu

Effect of 24-epibrassinolide (EBL) on the growth of rose-scented geranium [Pelargonium graveolens (L.) Herit] subjected to lead toxicity stress was investigated. Supplementation of EBL substantially alleviated the inhibitory effect of lead on the plant growth. Further, it was observed that EBL feeding negated the deleterious impact of lead toxicity on chlorophyll levels. The studies clearly demonstrated the lead toxicity amelioration capability of epibrassinolide in case of geranium, an aromatic plant with potential for phytoremediation.
