Abstract:
We studied the effect of drip irrigation with saline water on the yield and water use of muskmelons (Cucumis melo L.) grown in a glasshouse during winter and spring. Salinity suppressed the weight more than the number of fruit; it also reduced fruit netting and thus the percentage of marketable fruit. Salinity also reduced the evapo-transpiration rate. The ratio of soil solution salinity to irrigation water salinity decreased with a rise in salinity of the irrigation water. We discuss possible effects of irrigation practice and environmental conditions on the yield response curve to salinity. © 1981 The Williams & Wilkins Co.
