Effect of salt solutions of different osmotic potential on seed germination and seedling growth in someCassia species
Germination and seedling growth were studied on sevenCassia species with relation to salt solutions of different osmotic potential (Ψs).C. angustifolia, C. italica andC. pumila are more resistant to low osmotic potential andC. tora, C. auriculata, C. occidentalis andC. obtusifolia are very sensitive.
