These findings agree with the reports of [18] who reported that saline water effects over early flowering cultivars were less than that on late flowering cultivars and major factor associated with salinity tolerance was genetic potentiality of the genotype.
Saline groundwater effects on chemical composition of cultivars Sodium and Chloride The Na+ and Cl- content in straw of different maize cultivars were recorded higher with the use of saline water especially in higher salinity levels of groundwater.
Highest salt regime (120 mol NaCl m-3) caused a significant increase in Cl- concentration of the maize plant Effect of saline water on potassium content of plant straw The K content in maize straw increased with the application -1 + of canal water (EC 0.
Thus, this study aimed to evaluate different management strategies of irrigation with saline water in a cowpea/sunflower crop rotation system, trying to find the strategies that cause minor impact on soil and crop development, as well as higher economy of good quality water.
2]O salts in 7:3 equivalent ratio; and A4 - Saline water with EC of 5.
The contribution of saline water in total water depth applied in each treatment ranged from zero (T1) to 100% (Table 1).
The source of saline water used in this study was an aquifer that flowed over a layer of caliche clay within four meters of the land surface.
Saline water source Groundwater Bay Density 50,000 25,000 (number per hectare) Percent survival, 86.
In addition, one should avoid the use of saline water in the early stages of crop growth.
This behavior is probably due to the fact that one of the constituent of the salts used in preparation of saline water was calcium chloride, which must have provided the crop with calcium.
The retention rates of Na in stem, measured by the ratio of the concentrations in stem and leaf blade increased with the application of saline water in irrigation, mainly under continuous use of high salinity water (T5).
