Abstract:

Avocado is known, as Steve wonderfully reviewed for us this morning, as the most sensitive fruit tree to salinity. We have the data to demonstrate that the threshold level for salinity is lower than for any other crop plants, and that the slope, the reduction in the growth, as affected by increased salinity level is very high. Surprisingly, we have very little data about the mechanisms of the salt effect in the plants. We are going to present some first indication and demonstrate that the salinity processes of sensitivity to the stress in avocado might be a little bit different than in many other plants. This may suggest the reason for the increased sensitivity to salinity for avocado.
