Title:
SALT TOLERANCE OF ORNAMENTALS

Author:
Conrad A Skimina

pp: 113-118

Abstract:
Three series of tests were conducted from 1977 through 1979 on a number of container ornamentals to determine their tolerance to salt fortified irrigation water at four different levels of salinity, 140, 300, 600 and 1200 mhos × 10-5 electrical conductivity (E C.). Plants were evaluated after at least five months of irrigation for their salt tolerance determined by <50% retardation, no mortality and no visual foliar burn Of the 118 cultivars tested, 29 were very tolerant, 38 were moderately tolerant, 43 were sensitive, and 8 were very sensitive.
