Many crops accumulate salts through the leaves when they are wetted by sprinkler irrigation. This accumulation may cause foliar injury and decrease crop yield. This study was conducted to test the salt sensitivity of sprinkled alfalfa, barley, cauliflower, cotton, potato, safflower, sesame, sorghum, sugarbeet, sunflower and tomato. Plants were grown in a greenhouse in covered sand cultures that were trickle-irrigated with nonsaline nutrient solutions. Sprinkling with 15 and 30, and in the case… CONTINUE READING
