Abstract

Copper (Cu) pollution in agricultural soils is considered as a serious health risk due to its accumulation in plants. Thus, there is an urgent need to optimize nutrient application for higher yield with lower Cu uptake to ensure food security. A pot experiment was conducted to determine the effects of single and/or combined application of different levels (0 and 80 kg ha−1) of phosphorus (P) and gibberellic acid (0 and 100 mg L−1) on Cu accumulation, morpho-physiological and antioxidative defence attributes of jute (Corchorus capsularis L.) exposed to severe Cu stress (0, 200 and 400 mg kg−1). Results revealed that C. capsularis tolerated up to 200 mg kg−1 Cu concentration without a significant (P
