accounts for 32.07% of cultivated land in Xinjiang ( Zhang et al., 2017 ). Salt stress is one of the main abiotic stresses; it causes water deficit, ion toxicity, metabolic imbalance, and limits plant growth and crop yield ( Park et al., 2016 ; Ryu and Cho

Georgia would be expected to generate more favorable VPD and stem ψ values than those for the arid conditions of New Mexico. However, stem ψ values observed in Georgia reach the level of water stress for pecan at various times during crop development
