. Orchard trees were spaced 5 × 4 m and were drip irrigated as needed throughout the growing season. The treated trees did not exhibit any invisible symptoms of Ni or other nutrient deficiencies and midsummer leaf concentration was within the sufficient

-cell trays of soilless growing medium were watered or primed with 20 mL of 0, 1, or 10 to 90 m m sucrose in 10 m m increments. Moisture loss was quantified by weighing samples after watering air-dried medium. Wilting symptoms, loss of turgor causing

( Munns and Tester, 2008 ). During the osmotic phase, salt concentrations surrounding the roots reach a threshold level that negatively impacts plant water relations and reduces leaf expansion and new shoot growth. Curiously, shoot growth is more sensitive

Of all the environmental stresses, drought has the greatest adverse effect on plant growth and development, leading to extensive losses in productivity ( Ciais et al., 2005 ). The susceptibility of individual plants to drought stress depends on both
