Cadmium (Cd), known as a non-essential heavy metal, can cause oxidative stress in plants. In this study, an attempt was carried out to find out whether Cd-induced oxidative and microscopic changes could be observed in the early stage of seedling growth. Seeds of Brassica napus (cvs. Zheda 619 and ZS 758) were germinated in vitro at 0, 100, 200, 300, and 500 µM Cd concentrations in dark for 48 hours. Results showed that the higher concentration of Cd (500 µM) significantly reduced plant growthfatcat:dl5l5xbhqffltjoqhryigztfwu
