Abstract: 

The research was carried out in a split plot experiment based on complete block design with 4 replications, Zahedan, Iran. Stress responses were evaluated in 4 Atriplex speciesgrown under 3 salinity levels. The crude protein (CP), ash, Na, K, Cl, Ca and Mg contents of the aboveground (plant shoot) biomass was determined. Dry matter yields of A. leucoclada, A. canescens, A. lentiformis and A. verrucifera were 126.29,75.71,60.70 and 4.18 g/plant respectively. The maximum CP content (3.82%) was achieved in A. canescens, while the highest ash content (29.172%) was obtained from A. verrucifera. The highest Na content (6.052%) was recorded in A. leucoclada. The highest K content (1.991%) was achieved in A. canescens. The highest Cl content (6.157%) was observed in A. verrucifera. Maximum Mg content (1.402%) was obtained in A. verrucifera. The highest Ca content (0.517%) was observed in A. lentiformis. The results showed that the average quantity of Atriplex forage was not affected by different salinity levels. However, there was significant difference between species. The highest ability for forage production and quality under salinity was obtained in A. leucoclada.
