Effect of salt stress on the vegetative growth and development of tomato plants



Effect of salt stress on the vegetative growth and development of tomato plants



Acta Horticulturae ( 323): 401-410



Tomato plants of Rutgers, the Egyptian salt-tolerant Edkawy and the ripening mutant rin were grown in sand culture. The nutrient solution was supplemented with NaCl:CaCl2 (3:1, w/w) at 0.0, 2.5, 5.0 or 7.5 g/litre. Leaf water potential (LWP) decreased with increasing salinity. The decrease was more pronounced in young plants of Rutgers and rin than in Edkawy plants, the latter maintaining normal growth with minimal lowering of LWP during the first 9 days of saline treatment.
