related to this higher salt tolerance were that the interstock limited the uptake and transport of Cl – to the shoots by decreasing both the shoot-to-root ratio and leaf transpiration. ‘Verna’ lemon trees on SO rootstock interstocked with ‘Valencia

availability can vary greatly between years, and maintaining a balance between resource allocation in aboveground and belowground minimizes the potential of environmental stress. Plants with large shoot-to-root ratios can be more susceptible to transplant shock

root biomasses were expressed as percentage of the total plant biomass. Shoot-to-root ratio was determined by dividing combined the dry weights of stems and leaves by the dry weight of roots. Biomasses of the different root classes (large, medium, and
