  1. Characterize the uptake, translocation and allocation of NaCl of selected greenhouse rootstocks. This will include measurements of water uptake and yield responses.
  2. Evaluate the ameliorative effects of calcium (Ca) additions to tolerant and sensitive crape myrtle cultivars and rose rootstocks subjected to increasing salinity conditions.
  3. Summarize, analyze, write and submit manuscripts with results from past and present studies supported/funded by Rio Grande Initiative. This will include presentations at scientific (national and international), professional, industry and extension meetings.
