Effect of salinity on cotton growth and development: sodium cannot substitute for potassium in cotton



Effect of salinity on cotton growth and development: sodium cannot substitute for potassium in cotton



Journal of Plant Biology 27(3): 271-276



The effects of salinity (0, 5, 10, 15, and 20 dS/m NaCl) on the growth and composition (K, Na, and K/Na contents of roots, stems, leaves, and fruiting parts) of cotton (Gossypium hirsutum LRA 5166) were studied. Potassium nitrate and sodium nitrate were also supplied at 0, 2.5, 5.0, 7.5, and 10.0 mM to study the effect of K and Na on these K-deficient plants.
