ns and   indicate not significant and significance level of 1%, respectively. Total Chl. Co = total chlorophyll content, Chl. A = chlorophyll A, Chl. B = chlorophyll B, Photo. Anal. = photosynthesis analysis, SOD = superoxide dismutase, POD = peroxidase, APX = ascorbate peroxidase, CAT = catalase, Si% (leaf) = silicon percentage in leaves, Si% (root) = silicon percentage in roots, RDW (g/plant) MT = root dry weight at maximum tillering stage, RDW (g/plant) PI = root dry weight at panicle initiation stage, RDW (g/plant) = root dry weight at flowering stage, SDW (g/plant) MT = shoot dry weight at maximum tillering stage, SDW (g/plant) PI = shoot dry weight at panicle initiation stage, and SDW (g/plant) = shoot dry weight at flowering stage.
