@@@@Highlights •Combined Hg and WD stress increased Hg accumulation and translocation in maize.•Combined Hg and WD stress stimulated ROS accumulation, resulting in damaged photosynthesis.•WD aggravated the down-regulation of some photosynthesis-related genes under Hg stress.•BRs signaling pathway-related genes were up-regulated under Hg and WD stress.•Exogenous BRs could improve photosynthetic performance under combined Hg and WD stress.
