Aster tripolium: a winter forage: introduction for salt-affected soils

Aster tripolium: a winter forage: introduction for salt-affected soils

Halophyte uses in different climates II Halophyte crop development: Pilot studies Proceedings of the 3rd seminar of the EU Concerted Action Group IC 18CT 96-0055 Florence, Italy, 20 July 1998: 95-103

Aster tripolium, a winter forage, had a high degree of salt tolerance in hydroponic and field studies. A 50% reduction in yield took place at an electrical conductivity (EC) of 31.7 dS/m. Salinity and oxygen deficiency in combination had little effect on the growth of A. tripolium. In general A. tripolium had a high inbuilt capacity for salt accumulation. However, with the increase in root-zone salinity, the salt concentration in the shoot increased and was about 30% at 56 dS/m.
