Title:
Response of corn and soybeans to simulated saline aerosol drift from brackish water cooling towers
Publication date:
1981
Summary:
In field trials in 1973-7 at Upper Marlboro, Maryland asaline aerosols were applied to maize cv. Pioneer 3369A and soyabean cv. York. In both spp. crop yield was reduced by the saline aerosol deposition; Na uptake in maize was about twice ghat in soyabean. Soyabean was tolerant to foliar-applied salts up to 2 kg/ha wk. Early in the growth cycle, soyabean was more sensitive to saline aerosol drift than maize, but the reverse occurred when the plants matured. Mathematical equations showing the relationship between saline aerosol deposition rates and leaf Cl and leaf Na contents, metabolic index values and grain yield are described and discussed.
