The vacuolar Na⁺/H⁺ antiporter is known to alleviate saline stress by sequestering Na⁺ in both wildtype Arabidopsis and rice and when over-expressed in many transgenic plants. Here we report on the effect of the NHX1 transgene on the salt tolerance properties it confers to a rice landrace and a commercial cultivar suitable for the dry winter season, but which suffers loss due to seasonal stresses,...
