The main objective of this work is to demonstrate the expression of salt tolerance genes in a wheat-Agropyron amphiploid. Salt tolerance tests were carried out on wheat varieties, ‘Chinese Spring,’ and ‘Glenn-son 81’ the amphiploid between ‘Chinese Spring’ and A. junceum, A. junceum and amphiploid × wheat hybrids, Apart from germination in petridishes all other tests were carried out on plants grown in saline hydroculture tanks. Fresh weight measurements are given for stressed and non-stressed… CONTINUE READING
