Effects of NaCl or nutrient-induced salinity on growth , yield , and composition of eggplants grown in rockwool

  title={Effects of NaCl or nutrient-induced salinity on growth , yield , and composition of eggplants grown in rockwool},
  author={Dimitrios Savvas and Fritz Lenz},
The effects of increasing the salt concentration of a basic nutrient solution from 2.1 up to 4.7 dS mÿ1 by providing either additional amounts of nutrients or 25 mmol lÿ1 NaCl on growth, yield, fruit quality and mineral composition of eggplants were investigated. The extra nutrients used to raise the electrical conductivity were added either at the same ionic concentration ratio as in the basic nutrient solution or at an increased ratio of K to total cation concentration. The vegetative growth… CONTINUE READING
