AbstractFull Text

Introduction: Drought and salinity are major environmental factors that influence crop productivity worldwide. Plants are normally subjected to a combination of various types of abiotic stresses in nature, such as the combined effects of drought and salinity. Studies have revealed that the...

Abstract

More than half of residential water in Utah is used for landscape irrigation. Reclaimed water has been used to irrigate urban landscapes to conserve municipal water. High salt levels in reclaimed water may pose osmotic stress and ion toxicity to salt-sensitive plants. Viburnums are commonly used...

Abstract

Drought and salinity are the main limiting factors negatively affect plant growth and productivity. Proline is recently reported to play a positive role in plants exposed to various abiotic stresses. A two year field experiment was implemented consecutively to assess the potential effect of...

Abstract

To examine the effects of ericoid mycorrhizal (ERM) fungi on salt tolerance of ericaceous plants, we inoculated roots of velvetleaf blueberry (Vaccinium myrtilloides), Labrador tea (Rhododendron groenlandicum), and lingonberry (Vaccinium vitis-idaea) with ericoid mycorrhizal fungi Oidiodendron...

Abstract

The Arabian Gulf countries are facing unprecedented water management challenges owing to limited water resources and salinization of the soil. Date palm trees represent a crucial socio-economic asset in the region. Improving water productivity and tolerance to salinity are the most viable options....

Abstract

Sugarcane is a sugar-producing crop widely grown in tropical regions in over 120 countries of the world. Salt-affected soil is one of the most significant abiotic constraints that inhibit growth and crop productivity, and, consequently, reduce sucrose concentration in the stalk. The present study...

Abstract

Global climate change has increased warming with a concomitant decrease in water availability and increased soil salinity, factors that compromise agronomic production. On the other hand, new agronomic developments using irrigation systems demand increasing amounts of water to achieve an increase...

Abstract

Freshwater availability is declining in most of semi-arid and arid regions across the world, including the southwestern United States. The use of marginal quality groundwater has been increasing for sustaining agriculture in these arid regions. Reverse Osmosis (RO) can treat brackish groundwater,...

AbstractFull Text

Melatonin has different physiological functions in plants, such as active growth regulator signal. A factorial experiment, based on randomized complete blocks design, was carried out in order to evaluate of the effect of melatonin and sodium nitroprusside (SNP) on morpho-physiological traits of cut ...

Abstract

Hydroponics need water of good quality to prepare a balanced nutrient solution that could allow plants to reach their maximum yield potential. The rising difficulties in finding water with good quality have led to the compelling necessity of identifying sustainable ways to use saline water,...
