Effect of sodium chloride on water relations and some organic osmotica in arid zone plant species Melilotus indica (L.) All



Effect of sodium chloride on water relations and some organic osmotica in arid zone plant species Melilotus indica (L.) All



Tropenlandwirt 94(October): 95-102



Salt-tolerant and non-tolerant populations of M. indica were grown for 42 d in sand culture with 0, 80, 160 or 240 mol NaCl/msuperscript 3. The salt-tolerant population produced significantly more dry biomass than the non-tolerant line except at the highest salinity level. Plant DW was highest with 80 mol NaCl/msuperscript 3 in both lines. Leaf water potential was similar in the 2 populations and decreased linearly with increasing salt concentration.
