Evaluation of citrus rootstocks for salinity tolerance at seedling stage



Evaluation of citrus rootstocks for salinity tolerance at seedling stage



International Journal of Agriculture and Biology 3(1): 1-4



Citrus rootstocks i.e. Jatti khatti (Citrus jambhiri), Jambheri khatti (C. jambhiri), Gada dehi (C. aurantium), Kharna khatta (C. karna), Cleopatra mandarin (C. reshni) and Yuma citrange (Poncirus trifoliata x C. sinensis) were evaluated for salinity tolerance by transplanting their six months old seedlings in an artificially salinized soil. Four salinity levels i.e. 2.0, 4.0, 6.0 and 8.0 dS m-1, were developed by mixing Na2SO4, CaCl2, NaCl and MgSO4 salts in the soil.
