N2 - Mixed nitrate/ammonium fertilization can partially alleviate the negative effects of salinity on growth of some plant species compared to all-nitrate or all-ammonium fertilization. To gain insights about the mechanisms involved, tomato (Solanum lycopersicum L. cv Moneymaker) plants were grown hydroponically for 3 weeks with two NO3 (-)/NH4 (+) fertilization regimes (6/0.5 and 5/1.5; N-total = 6.5 mM) in the absence (control) or presence of salt stress (100 mM NaCl). Ammonium enrichment had no effect on growth and other parameters under control conditions. Under salinity, however, ammonium enrichment improved shoot and root biomass by 20% and maintained leaf PSII efficiency close to control levels.

Enhanced cytokinin status was probably due to maintenance of root-to-shoot cytokinin transport and decreased leaf induction of the cytokinin-degrading enzyme cytokinin oxidase/dehydrogenase (CKX) under ammonium-enriched conditions.
