Plain language title
Genetics of salinity tolerance in melon
 
What is it about?
This study was conducted to investigate the genetic basis of salinity tolerance in melon (Cucumis melo L.) using a mating design with 55 F1 hybrids and 11 parents.
 
Why is it important?
There are relatively few studies available dealing with the genetic basis of salinity tolerance in crop plants under the field conditions.
 
Perspectives

The observations indicate that the genetic mechanisms underlying these traits were affected by salinity stress to increase the extent of dominance gene actions. It may be concluded that any breeding strategy should rely on hybrid development especially tailored to the target environment. In addition, the magnitude of heterosis for yield-associated and quality traits under both environmental conditions shows the potential for enhancing fruit yield and quality parameters through a systematic search for heterotic groups and evaluation of parents for their specific combining abilities.
