The global need for increased food production means that agriculture is moving into regions with lower rainfall and saline soils, which occupy over 6% of the world land area (Munns, 2005). The aim of this workshop was to work towards completing an energy budget for the mechanisms of salinity tolerance in crop plants, as a guide to the most cost‐effective breeding strategies for increasing salt tolerance and yield of important crops. The discussions took into account the supply of energy from...[Show more]
