The salt and harmful ions in saline land causes the majority of plants to fail to grow normally. In recent years, the scholars proposed to grow salt-tolerance plants on saline soil so as to improve it. Through this way it can improve the ecological environment and advance the soil fertility.
There are plentiful of ornamental plant species in China. But at present, the varieties of ornamental plants used in the city are unitary and the resources of high value are deficient. Many modern biological breeding techniques for plant varieties has been developed, and the modern bio-techniques have reached into many new fields of modern plants breeding.
The objective of this project is to develop salt-tolerance greenery forestation plant varieties, enrich salt-tolerance plant species for saline and alkaline regions.
The Institute of Costal Agriculture, Hebei Academy of Agriculture and Forestry Sciences, has a strong research program in greenery forestation for coastal areas. We wish to develop cooperative linkage with research institutes and scientists of the other countries, to apply advanced technologies such as molecular breeding, gene transformation, gene clone, etc, into the traditional plant breeding program, to elucidate the salt tolerance mechanism, to clone salt tolerance gene and molecular marker, to establish salt tolerance plant breeding technique based on molecular mechanism, to improve the salt tolerance of plant by mutagenesis, hybridization and domestication, to transfer the cloned gene into the major ornamental plants to create new ornamental plants suitable for saline and alkaline coastal areas.
