Abstract: 

Cultivation of salt tolerant plants like madder (Rubia tinctorum L.) at saline soils not only may lead to acceptable yield, but also helps soil reclamation and may lower salinity intensity. A greenhouse experiment was conducted to evaluate the effects of salinity sources and levels on growth and solute composition of madder. A factorial experiment was carried out in randomized block design with three replications at Yazd Agricultural and Natural Resources Research Center. Treatments included three salt sources (NaCl, Na2SO4, and NaCl+Na2So4) and six salinity levels (0, 4.5, 9.0, 13.5, 18.0 and 22.5 dS/m). The results showed that plant shoots and roots damages were significantly (p£0.01) sever by the mixture of NaCl+Na2SO4 than by NaCl and Na2SO4 alone. Increased salinity decreased plant number, weight of shoots and roots dry matter, and leaf area per pot regardless of salinity sources. Leaf free proline concentration also increased by salinity. Foliage sodium and potassium contents resulted from sodium chloride increased and decreased by rising salinity level, respectively. Critical salt tolerant level for madder was determined to be nearly 14.0 dS/m of soil saturation extract.
