COMPARISION OF ACCUMULATION OF ORGANIC AND INORGANIC OSMOLYTE IN TRIANTHEMA PORTULACASTRUM L. GROWING IN SALINE AND NON-SALINE HABITATSB.S. Mali and R.D. Chitale
was made to establish the role of osmolytes such as protein, proline, macro and micro elements in Trianthema portulacastrum L. growing in saline (man-made) and non-saline habitats of Baramati Tehasil (M.S.) India. Maximum concentration of above organic and inorganic osmolytes was observed in plants growing in saline habitats except concentration of Fe3+. However, it also reveals that accumulation of organic and inorganic osmolytes confers ability to Trianthema portulacastrum L. collected from saline condition (man-made) to tolerate salt stress condition.
