, geographical distribution proved to be a strong driving factor on plant adaptation to stress. Burke (1990) reported that crops grown in semiarid areas developed mechanisms which enabled them to overcome permanent exposure to high temperature. Those mechanisms

Soil salinization is a widespread problem affecting ≈20% of world irrigated land, posing a threat to crop production ( Munns et al., 2020 ). Because most crops are glycophytes and sensitive to salt stress, it is expected that a low level of salinity

May, 2005 , 2006 ; Phene et al., 1985 ). The basic equation is now widely used by CV tomato farmers for irrigation scheduling is ETc = Kc × ETo, where ETc is the projected evapotranspiration of the tomato crop, Kc is a corresponding growth

Cold and drought stresses are acknowledged to be the two most dominant environmental stresses that affect the growth, productivity, and distribution of crops and horticultural plants ( Boyer, 1982 ; Levitt, 1980 ). The plasma membrane of the cell
