Atriplex, a prospective forage crop in arid and semi-arid lands



Atriplex, a prospective forage crop in arid and semi-arid lands



Rangelands: a resource under siege Proceedings of the 2nd International Rangeland Congress, Adelaide, Australia, 13-18 May 1984: 275



Seven Atriplex spp. grown in a controlled environment were investigated for salt tolerance. Seeds germinated at up to 5000 p.p.m. salinity and plants generally tolerated up to 4000 p.p.m., though stem length was significantly decreased. The CP content of seedlings was high but decreased with increasing salinity. The area of lignified tissue was considerably decreased in A. canescens and A. vesicaria with increasing salinity and the amount of cortical parenchyma increased.
