Abstract:
Continued irrigation with saline water on Arizona's already salty farm lands will increase the need for crops that are able to maintain yields under stress. We investigated responses of gemùnation salt- tolerant alfalfa (Medicago sativa L.) to salt and temperature stress interactions in comparison to Mesa - Sirsa. Significant interactions were found for the populations, salts and temperatures and their effects on percent germination. The germination salt - tolerant cycles proved to be more cold and heat tolerant under salt stress then Mesa - Sirsa.
