Despite the large interest in the use of Chenopodium quinoa as a crop on extreme habitats, very little is known about growth response and seed yield under saline conditions. As a prerequisite for its sustainable utilization in salt-affected areas, this study aimed to unravel individual physiological and morphological mechanisms that determine its salt tolerance. Hence, the plants were grown in a hydroponic quick check system with 0, 100, 200, 300, 400, and 500 mM NaCl (equivalent to 0, 20, 40… CONTINUE READING
