Salt stress protocol

In the search for salt tolerant genotypes it is important to apply a fast and efficient screening system to test plant performance under salt stress. We developed a salt stress protocol that efficiently tests a high number of plants within a short time frame for salt resistance. Plants are grown in hydroponics, which allows to easily applying salt to the nutrient solution. In contrast to stress treatments on soil, hydroponics allow keeping the concentration of salt in the nutrient solution constant at all phases of the experiment. The performance of plants under salt stress was tested by measuring chlorophyll fluorescence and water potential.
