Salinity-calcium interactions, which have been shown to be important in plants grown in dryland saline soils of the Canadian prairies, were studied in two species differing in salt tolerance. In solution culture, wheat showed a greater reduction in growth and a higher incidence of foliar Ca deficiency symptoms than barley when grown under MgSO4 or Na2SO4 plus MgSO4 salt stress. Amendment of the saline solution with Ca to increase the Ca/(Na+Mg) ratio ameliorated the effects of salt, but more so… CONTINUE READING
