Influence of salinity on chemical composition of some alfalfa cultivars (Medicago sativa L.)

Influence of salinity on chemical composition of some alfalfa cultivars (Medicago sativa L.)

Annals of Agricultural Science, Moshtohor 33(2): 599-612

Greenhouse trials were conducted to assess the effects of 0-3000 p.p.m. NaCl in irrigation water on the chemical composition of 13 M. sativa cultivars grown in clay loam. Generally, crude protein content, percentage ash, percentage ether extract and Na+ levels increased and crude fibre content and K+ levels decreased with increasing salinity. Cultivars responded differently to salinity in terms of crude protein content which was highest in Jila 28, W. L. 605, Salalah 32 and Khaboora 43.
