Abstract: 
This research was aimed to achieve a method resulting in further establishment and survival of Haloxylon ammodendron seedlings as well as increased water productivity. The study was conducted in the Sejzi plain for nine months. In this experiment, Haloxylon ammodendron was cultivated in the study area under two treatments: plastic film and control. Porous plastic films were applied to avoid water loss. Both treatments were under the same conditions. This project was carried out in a completely randomized design over a period of nine months. During this period, indicators such as seedling height and crown diameter were measured. Data were analyzed by SPSS software. Our results clearly showed that the plastic film was a suitable water-supplying technique for the growth of Haloxylon ammodendron seedlings in such areas with severe evapotranspiration and high-speed winds. The land of Sejzi is porous, leading to the water loss; therefore, the success of this method is related to avoiding the loss of water needed for plant growth.
