Two things made me intersted in this-- discusion on the forum about asparagus, beets and other plants tolerating salt Also the impending world water shortage-where are we going to find water for another 2.5 billion people? I don't know if this has been discussed in the past as this program's search engine is not good enough for me to check. If you know of any salt tolerant plants please lengthen the list. Serendipitously i just came across an interesting article on this. First defining 'salt tolerant is hard. There are many salts, some used as fertilisers the article uses this graph to define it Tolerant crops he lists include these but see the article for more detail. https://www.fao.org/DOCREP/005/Y4263E/y4263e0e.htm Asparagus Barley Canola or rapeseed Cotton Date-palm Fig (mildly tolerant) Guar Cyamopsis tetragonoloba Kenaf Hibiscus cannabinus Natal plum Carissa grandiflora Wildrye, Altai Elymus angustus Wildrye, Russian E. junceus millet Triticale Sugar beet Tamarugo Prosopis tamarugo Wheat, Durum Alkaligrass, Nuttall Puccinellia airoides (Nutt.) oats Kallargrass Leptochloa fusca Saltgrass, desert Distichlis spicta The article also lists plants that are mildly tolerant of salt and those sensitive to salt. Is there any way of testing soil salt levels? (apart from waiting for it to go white).
