Experimental plots were artificially salinized. Salts were applied in proportions such that for various conductivity levels the ratio of Ca + Mg to Na ions was 1:1. The relationship between salinity levels and time taken for 50 percent germination indicates that germination was delayed with increase in salinity levels. Transplanted seedlings had a better survival rate than in situ seedlings grown at various levels of salinity. Once established ber seedlings maintained equally satisfactory growth even at the highest levels of salinity (21.0 mmhos/cm).
