Selection of avocado rootstocks for saline conditions

, : Selection of avocado rootstocks for saline conditions. Acta Horticulturae: 189-197

A selection and testing programme has been conducted over the last 15 years, in three main stages. In the first, selection was carried out among numerous seedlings of the Mexican, Guatemalan, and West Indian types growing under saline conditions. Some of the few outstandingly tolerant seedlings were then propagated vegetatively and their offspring used for further experiments. In the second stage, the behaviour of various grafted seedling rootstocks was studied under saline conditions.
