The purpose of this study was to quantify the main antioxidant components of wheat seedlings, consecutive sodium selenite treatment at doses of 5 respectively 10 ppm selenium. Was evaluated as the content of total chlorophylls, chlorophylls a, chlorophylls b, carotenes and xanthophylls, vitamin C and antiradical activity of wheat seedlings. Sodium selenite had benefits on seedlings, manifested by a significant increase (p<0.05) of chlorophylls levels (until +173.03%), carotene and xanthophylls (until +318.71%), vitamin C (until +1728.33%) and improving of their antiradical capacity (until +600.77%).
