For most plants, and under most field conditions, osmotic effects of salinity greatly predominate in restricting growth and yields. In certain cases, however, specific ion effects may be decisive. These may involve either nutrition, as in calcium deficiency in some lettuce varieties, tomato, and bell peppers, or direct toxicity (chloride or sodium toxicity,(More)
It is apparent that heightened interest in salinity and related factors which restrict plant growth in arid or irrigated areas has produced notable contributions to the literature of this field in the past two decades. Quantitative information on the salt tolerance of the most important crop plants has been obtained, and the proximal causes of salt injury(More)
