The purpose of this work was to investigate effects of zonal variations in salinity within the rootzone on chloride uptake and accumulation by grapevines under glasshouse conditions. Experiments involved vines with either established or developing root systems.

In all experiments. chloride only accumulated in root tissues which were present or grew into salt affected zones within sand slopes.

Results are discussed in relation to assessing variation in chloride accumulation by hybrid grapevines.
