Round 1

Reviewer 1 Report

Review of manuscript

The manuscript is very intertesting but lack practice information about detoxification stress of rice

Title

Ok, correct

Key words: I have suggested add salicylic acid and sodium nitroprusside

 

Introduction

Line 51

In Bangladesh can used industral sewage sludge to environment ?, agicultural land ? 

Line 57

I suggest add paper about plant growth in Cd polluted soils. For example:

Bączek-Kwinta R., Juzoń K., Borek M., Antonkiewicz J. 2019. Photosynthetic response of cabbage in cadmium-spiked soil. Photosynthetica, 57, 3, 731-739. DOI: 10.32615/ps.2019.070

Why used plnt – rice in research, in experiment with SA and NO ?

 

Material and methods

Line 460

Were the Certified reference materials (CRM) used in analysis of Cd

 

Results

Was the electrolyte leakage from the leaves tested?

Good discibed results  

 

Discussion

Please give information about remediation of Cd by plants, because many plants uptake Cd from soils

For example:

Kusznierewicz B., Bączek-Kwinta R., Bartoszek A., Piekarska A., Huk A., Manikowska A., Antonkiewicz J., Namieśnik J., Konieczka P. 2012. The dose-dependent influence of zinc and cadmium contamination of soil on their uptake and glucosinolate content in white cabbage (Brassica Oleracea var. Capitata F. Alba). Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry, 31, 11, 2482-2489. DOI:10.1002/etc.1977

 

Conclusion

Why rice cultiveted in polluted soils ?

Reviewer 2 Report

This research about the cadmium stress in plants is very important on the context of climate change and increase pollution. However, the manuscript needs a major review by authors. The suggestion are given on the manuscript (a file is enclosed).
