|Abstract:||The experiment on "Reaction of pomegranate Cv. Mrudula to soil salinity" was undertaken during the year 1996-97 at Mahatma Phule Krishi Vidyapeeth, Rahuri, Maharashtra. Three months old layers of pomegranate Cv. Mrudula were grown for eight months in artificially salinized soils having ECe levels of 077 Control) 3, 6, 9, 12 and 15 dsnr1 each of NaCl and Na2S04 salts, to find out the salt tolerance level of this new cultivar; and also to see the effects on the growth. The results indicated that, survival and plant growth were satisficatory upto ECe 6 dsnr1. However, plant mortality and growth suppression was drastic at ECe 9 dsnr1 and onwards. The results also indicated that with the increase in soil ECe, there was decrease in nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, calcium and magne sium content of leaves, while sodium and chloride content of leaves in creased with increasing soil salinity. NaCl was more harmful than Na2S04 Visual symptoms of salt injury were evident by colour of leaflets from green to yellow, tip and marginal burning of leaves, drying of shoot tip, and die back of main stem. The symptoms were seen at salinity levels of 9 dsnr1 (T3) and above.|
