young transplant to old tree with brown stem. 2. Nutrient requirement . 
3. Soil/water requirement. 4. Tolerance to salinity, mechanisms for 
dealing with high salinity in soil. 5. Susceptability to bacterial/viral 
disease and insect-boring infestation. Methods of treatment. 6. Tissue 
culture techniques for propogating disease free plants. 7.Cross breeding
