This work analyzes the effect of soil salinity on olive oil quality. The chemical composition of oils extracted from young ‘Arbequina' olives subject in the field to three soil salinity levels (low-L, medium-M and high-H) was determined throughout a period of three years. A total of 30 parameters were analyzed (moisture, oil content, acidity, per...


... Very few studies have examined the effect of saline water on oil quality (Gucci and Tattini, 1997). Cresti et al. (1994) reported that salinity increased aliphatic and triterpenic alcohol content and the oleic-linolenic acid ratio while Royo et al. (2005) report a decrease of the aliphatic alcohols and palmitoleic acid with salinity in Arbequina oils. ...
