Treatment with acetyl salicilic acid protects muskmelon seedings against drought stress

Salicylic acid (SA) is a common plant-produced signal molecule that is responsible for inducing tolerance to a number of biotic and abiotic stresses. An experiment was, therefore, conducted to test whether acetyl salicylic acid (ASA) application at various concentrations through seed soaking or foliar spray would protect muskmelon [Cucumis melo L. (reticulatus group)] seedlings, subjected to drought stress. Twenty-three-day-old plants pre-treated with ASA (0, 0.1, 0.25, 0.50 or 1.0 mM) were subjected to drought stress for 1 week in a greenhouse. ASA applied either through seed soaking or through foliar spray was effective within the range of 0.1–1 mM in providing drought stress protection in muskmelon seedlings; however, there was no difference between application methods indicating that both methods provided similar levels of protection. ASA significantly affected all seedling growth and stress indicator variables measured except leaf number and root dry weight. The best protection appeared to be obtained from seedlings pre-treated with lower concentrations of ASA. Even though both methods provided similar means of protection, due to its simplicity and practicality, soaking muskmelon seeds prior to sowing in up to 0.5 mM ASA would be a more desirable method.
