Title:
Progress in the Development of Salt Tolerance in Alfalfa

Forage and Grain: A College of Agriculture Report
Abstract:
Increasing crop salt tolerance can mean higher yields on irrigated farmland and salt -affected soils. Three cycles of selection were made for growth of alfalfa seedlings under 7500 ppm NaCl. Comparison of parent and selected populations was made for yield and germination under saline conditions. Yield of the last cycle was significantly improved. Germination of the last two cycles was higher than that of the parent and cycle 1.
