Abstract

Plants developed defensive mechanisms to detect and response to environmental stresses at cellular and molecular levels. This study was conducted to evaluate the potential of plant growth-promoting bacteria and auxin treatments to alleviate drought stress in wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) as split plot randomized complete block design with three replications. Drought stress was considered as the main factor in three levels (25, 50 and 75% of field capacity). The application of PGPR treatment in subplots was included control (without bacteria), Azotobacter, pseudomonas and a combination of both bacteria and application of auxin in sub-sub-plots, at four levels (0, 1, 2 and 4 mg per liter). Was considered. Results indicated that malondialdehyde was affected by drought stress, drought stress × bacteria interaction and auxin at 1% probability level and the interaction of drought stress × bacteria × auxin at 5% probability level. In the second year, malondialdehyde showed significant difference in drought stress, the interaction of drought stress × bacteria at 1% probability level and drought stress × auxin interaction at 5% probability level. Relative water content of the flag leaf was affected by drought stress and bacteria in both years at probability level of 1% and 5% probability level. Proline content just effected by drought stress at probability level of 1% in two years. Results also indicated that leaf chlorophyll content was affected by drought stress and bacteria at 1% probability level and the interaction of drought stress × bacteria at 5% probability level. In the second year, chlorophyll was significantly affected by drought stress, bacteria and drought stress × bacteria at 1% probability level.
