The effect of excess nutrient levels of manganese (Mn, 50 and 100 M) on the growth inhibition and the appearance of Mn-toxicity symptoms in the leaves was studied in cucumber plants (Cucumis sativus L. cv. Chinese long). Silicon (Si), when supplied as 1.5 mM silicic acid, clearly decreased symptoms of Mn-toxicity despite approximately the same total Mn content in the leaves. In treated plants, Si improves growth and biomass production compared with that of non-Si treated plants. Inertdoi:10.5937/zasmat1603424d fatcat:2gdljbeu3bfvbac7ulbokvvgpq
