Yield and transpiration of juvenile date palms (Phoenix dactylifera L., cv. Medjool) were studied under conditions of increasing salinity and boron in lysimeters. Twenty seedlings were planted and grown in 20 lysimeters and irrigated with combinations of four salinity and five B irrigation concentrations. A linear decrease was found for both yield and for transpiration in response to increased soil saturated paste salinity for the treatments having lower B concentrations (0.0278, 0.185 and 0… CONTINUE READING
