The response of lucerne (Medicago sativa L.) to sodium sulphate and chloride salinity



The response of lucerne (Medicago sativa L.) to sodium sulphate and chloride salinity



Plant and Soil 202(2): 271-280



The effect of Na2SO4 and NaCl, at electrical conductivity levels ranging from 2 to 17 dS/m, on the growth and tissue ion concentrations of 16 lines of lucerne (Medicago sativa) was examined in the greenhouse over a 2 month period. Averaged across all lines, plants grown at 17 dS/m produced 66% of the dry matter of plants grown at 2 dS/m.
