Fig. 1

Effect of SA on the pollen viability and seed-setting rate of rice under heat stress at the pollen mother cell meiosis stage. a, the images of pollen grains in rice plants sprayed with salicylic acid under control and heat stress; a-f and g-i were the images of pollen grains of rice plants under control and heat stress, respectively. b, the images of rice plants with panicles sprayed with SA under control and heat stress. a and c, the images of rice plant sprayed with H2O (SA0); b and d, the images of rice plants and panicles sprayed with 10 mM SA (SA10). c, the data in the figure (a) and (b) were shown as the mean of ten and three replicates, respectively. Vertical bars denote standard deviations (n = 10 and 3 in (a) and (b), respectively). Different letters indicate significant differences between the SA treatments under control and heat stress (P < 0.05)
