Salt Tolerance of Australian Channel Millet

  title={Salt Tolerance of Australian Channel Millet},
  author={M. Shannon and E. Wheeler and R. Saunders},
Undomesticated plant species may be a valuable resource for increasing crop diversity and developing crops for use in semiarid and saline areas. Australian channel millet (Echinochloa tumerana (Domin) J. M. Black) is very drought tolerant; however, its salt tolerance has not been tested. In drum culture studies, conducted in the greenhouse, plant height, weight, and seed grain weight were measured as a function of saline stress. Concentrations of Na, Ca, and Cl in leaves and stems increased as… Expand
