Head of activity: Josip Tadić mag.ing.agr.
Organizer: Institute for Adriatic Crops and Karst Reclamation
Description of activity: Within the framework of “Activity 2: Olive Phenotyping” a greenhouse experiment was set up at the Institute for Adriatic Crops and Karst Reclamation in Split. The experiment was set up with 26 different olive genotypes (10 wild, 12 introduced and 4 autochthonous). The plants were planted in a mixture of inorganic substrates (perlite: vermiculite – 1: 1 (v / v)) in pots of 3.6 liters. Plants are irrigated with ½ Hoagland solution (control) and after the adaptation, treatments with salt (150 mM NaCl) and drought will be applied.
