Salt Tolerance of Atriplex During Germination and Early Growth

Y. M. Ibrahim

Abstract


Five Arriplex species were evaluated under the different salt concentrations. Sea water of specific electrical conductivity was used as a source of salinity at three different concentrations: I2, 24 and 36 dSm-1 Distilled water containing one-tenth volume modified hougland solution served as a control. An increase in salt concentration resulted in a significant reduction in germination. However, increases in mineral composition in the plants were observed without a reduction in yield under high salt treatments. This was an indication of salinity tolerance in Arriplex spp.
