Abstract

This study evaluates and compares the remediation potential of rapeseed, soybean and wheat plants for Cr contamination. Seedlings of rapeseed (Brassica campestris cv Pusa Gold), soybean (Glycine max cv Pusa 20) and wheat (Triticum aestivum cv HD 2402) were grown hydroponically and subjected to four levels of Cr treatment (T0: Control, T1: 50 μM, T2: 100 μM and T3: 200 μM). The treated plants exhibited extreme variations in their defence behaviour against Cr stress. The extent of oxidative stress caused by Cr was measured by the rate of lipid peroxidation.
