Abstract

Walnut (Juglans regia.L.) is one of the most important nut with high economical value. Plant stressors such as salinity and drought has major impact on plant development and productivity thus causing serious agricultural yield losses. Walnut needs large amount of water to reach its optimal yield and quality and many current commercial walnut cultivars are very sensitive to drought and salt stress factors. Due to the soil salinization and drought many agricultural lands becomes arid or semi-arid. Thus finding new cultivars and rootstock that shows relatively high level of tolerance to salinity and drought stress factors in different growing stage can prevent severe yield loss in walnut. Also allow us to plant walnut in semi-arid or even arid regions. In this article we will focus on the salinity and drought stress studies conducted on walnut.
