Doha: The Ministry of Municipality represented by the Agricultural Analysis Division organised a lecture entitled, ‘Utilizing bio-engineering know-how to precise the genes of halophytic crops that improve gene expression for salt tolerance in crops’.
The lecture was delivered by Dr. Mona Ali Al Balushi, an skilled within the Division of Biotechnology within the Division.
Using applied sciences goals to beat a number of the environmental issues dealing with crops, together with salinity, which has a adverse impression on crops in several levels of progress, and salinity is taken into account one of many elements that have an effect on the speed of plant productiveness. The examine confirmed that salt tolerance genes in halophytic crops assist enhance salinity tolerance in different crops. The crops had been examined underneath the affect of sodium chloride for a interval of 4 weeks to guage, and the outcomes discovered that the salt tolerance genes in halophytic crops after 4 weeks of publicity to salt stress.
