The Response of Fodderbeet to Salinity: An Analysis of Physiological and Morphological Aspects of Growth

Banaras H. Niazi, Jelte Rozema and M. Salim    

Abstract: Greenhouse studies on fodderbeet cultivars Beta vulgaris (cvs. Majoral, Monored, and Polygroeningia) and of Beta maritima (Seabeet) showed significant differences for Relative Growth Rate (RGR) among themselves while no significant differences were observed for salinity treatments until the first harvest. Plants had adapted themselves to salinity after six weeks of treatment and showed significant differences in RGR and Net Assimilation Rate (NAR) during the whole period of growth. Leaf thickness did not change significantly with salinity. B. vulgaris cv. Majoral and B. maritima were found to be better adapted 150 mM NaCl concentration in soil solution than cv. Monored and Polygroeningia under greenhouse conditions.
