Salt tolerance through increased vigor in a flax line (STS-II) selected for salt tolerance in vitro

  title={Salt tolerance through increased vigor in a flax line (STS-II) selected for salt tolerance in vitro},
  author={Alan McHughen},
  journal={Theoretical and Applied Genetics},
Progeny of a flax (Linum usitatissimum L. cv “McGregor”) plant, regenerated from a cell line selected in vitro for salt tolerance (designated STS-II) was tested for its performance over two generations in normal and in saline soil against its parent variety. Germination, seedling height, flowering, seed set and seed yield in controlled greenhouse conditions were recorded. The putative salt tolerant line was superior in saline soil for all parameters measured, indicating that the mechanism… CONTINUE READING
