An investigation was undertaken on the relative tolerance to salinity of the olive varieties Manzanillo, Souri and Sigoise in the arid zone of Israel (Negev), in an experimental grove of the Jewish National Fund, using 11-year-old trees that were grown on saline and non-saline soils under irrigation with sewage water. Manzanillo was the most sensitive to salinity, yields and development of trunk, crown and root system all being adversely affected. Sigoise was the most tolerant to salinity and vegetative development was not impaired at all. Souri was intermediate in sensitivity to salinity. In spite of the susceptibility of Manzanillo it is preferred because of its high yield, which was greater even on a saline soil than yields of the other two varieties on non-saline soil. © 1967, Cambridge University Press.
