Expression levels and promoter activities of candidate salt tolerance genes in halophytic and glycophytic Brassicaceae.
However, the germination of halophytic seeds in saline conditions shows better results than glycophytic seeds because the former can withstand salinity [38, 49].
For these glycophytic crops, the yield response curve to increasing salinity has been presented as two linear sections or a single linear line if growth immediately declines with increasing salinity.
