Biosaline agriculture for forage and livestock production
Abstract There are a range of plants that are capable of growing under conditions of saline soil and water. Many of these plants represent a feed resource for livestock. At the lower levels ofExpand

Biomass yield and nutritional quality of forage species under long-term irrigation with saline-sodic drainage water: Field evaluation
Abstract On the Westside of California's San Joaquin Valley, the discharge of subsurface agricultural drainage water (DW) is subject to strict environmental regulations due to its high selenium (Se)Expand

Brief pre- and post-irrigation sprinkling with fresh water reduces foliar salt uptake in maize and barley sprinkler irrigated with saline water
Brief pre- and post-irrigation sprinkling treatments using freshwater were tested to determine if these practices could reduce the uptake of salts through leaves when saline water is used toExpand

Forage yield and quality under irrigation with saline-sodic drainage water: Greenhouse evaluation
Abstract Reuse of saline-sodic drainage water (DW) to irrigate salt-tolerant forages is an attractive option for growers in California's drainage-impaired, San Joaquin Valley since it will reduce theExpand

Foliar and root absorption of Na+ and Cl− in maize and barley: Implications for salt tolerance screening and the use of saline sprinkler irrigation
Above-canopy sprinkler irrigation with saline water favours the absorption of salts by wetted leaves and this can cause a yield reduction additional to that which occurs in salt-affected soils.Expand

Field performance of halophytic species under irrigation with saline drainage water in the San Joaquin Valley of California
Halophytes have been considered as potential crops for the reuse of saline drainage water (DW) in the western portion of California's San Joaquin Valley. This management strategy can reduce drainageExpand

Evaluation of salt-tolerant forages for sequential water reuse systems: I. Biomass production
Abstract Reuse of saline drainage waters is a management option that has been suggested for the San Joaquin Valley (SJV) of California in order to reduce both the area affected by shallow waterExpand

Biomass accumulation and potential nutritive value of some forages irrigated with saline-sodic drainage water
A controlled study using a sand-tank system was conducted to evaluate 10 forage species (bermudagrass, ‘Salado’ and ‘SW 9720’ alfalfa, ‘Duncan’ and ‘Polo’ Paspalum, ‘big’ and ‘narrow leaf’ trefoil,Expand

Using saline soil and marginal quality water to produce alfalfa in arid climates
The gradual increase in the amount of land and water resources affected by salt in arid and semi-arid regions requires strategies to optimize the use of these marginal-quality resources. Recent fieldExpand
