BACKGROUND AND AIMS In Tunisia, salt water is largely used for tomato irrigation. In this work, a study was made of the changes in the nitrate reduction and ammonium assimilation into amino acids in tomato seedlings under salinity in order to providee further insight into the salt effects on plant growth. Methods Ten-day-old tomatoes (Solanum lycopersicum) were subjected to 100 mm NaCl stress, and nitrogen metabolism in leaves and roots was studied. KEY RESULTS The concentrations of Na+ and… CONTINUE READING
