The possibility of using ethrel to identify plants relatively tolerant to salinity i. tomato lycopersicon esculentum



The possibility of using ethrel to identify plants relatively tolerant to salinity i. tomato lycopersicon esculentum



Egyptian Journal of Horticulture 15(1): 71-84



Pot experiments were conducted during the years 1984 and 1985 to investigate the effect of different levels of salinity and Ethrel on tomato varieties (Lycopersicon esculentum). The aim of this work was to investigate the significance of using Ethrel in screening for cultivars relatively tolerant to salinity and to identify suitable growth parameters that might be used. Moreover, comparisons under saline conditions of newly introduced cultivars of tomato could assist in their successful introduction to the Egyptian farmer. High negative correlations were noticed in all tomato varieties between Ethrel treatment and salinity treatment as regards plant height, fruit number and fruit weight. High positive correlations were noticed between Ethrel and salinity in regards to leaf and flower abscission. The effect of Ethrel simulated the effect of salinity on both plant height, leaf abscission, fruit number and fruit weight. Tomato varieties Alfresco, Delisae and Duke produced higher yields in comparison with Peto and Edkawy under saline conditions.
