The effects of NaCl on the transport rates of cations, NO3-, and reduced N compounds between roots and shoot and on NO3- assimilation rate were examined on plants of two species differing in their sensitivity to salinity, bean (Phaseolus vulgare L. cv Gabriella) and cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L. cv Akala). Biomass production after 20 d in response to 50 and 100 mM NaCl decreased by 48 and 59% in bean, but only 6 and 14% in cotton. The comparison of the flow patterns obtained for control and… CONTINUE READING
