Salt effects on seed germination and seedling emergence of several crops are evaluated to understand poor plant stands occurring in furrow-irrigated fields in saline areas. The test crops were carrot (Daucus carota L. cv. Imperator 58), chile pepper (Capsicum annuum L. cv. New Mexico 6-4), tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum M. cv. Rutgers), and guayule(More)
Seedling mortality caused by excessive salinity is common in establishing furrow-irrigated crops. This study was conducted to evaluate the processes involved and salinity levels leading to seedling mortality in guayule (Parthenium argentatum Gray cv. 593), carrot (Daucus carota L. cv. Imperator-58), chile pepper (Capsicum annuum L. cv. New Mex. 6–4), and(More)
Irrigated cultivation of pecans (Carya illinoensis K.) has increased dramatically in the Southwestern USA, yet their tolerance to salinity remains largely unknown. The first part of this study was conducted to assess if stunted tree growth reported in clayey soils is related to salinity, and the second part was to evaluate changes in soil salinity and the(More)
