    A major QTL on chromosome 7HS controls the response of barley seedling to salt stress in the Nure × Tremois population

    Seedling establishment is a crucial and vulnerable stage in the crop life cycle which determines further plant growth. While many studies are available on salt tolerance at the vegetative stage, the mechanisms...
