This experiment is conducted as part of ICBA’s extensive research on salt-tolerant grasses. Scientists study the effects of different levels of salinity and irrigation on the productivity of Guinea grass (Megathyrsus maximus) and Blue panicum (Panicum antidotale) in sandy soils. The experiment is specifically focused on:
- Determining the effects of three salinity and irrigation levels on fresh biomass yields of three cultivars of Guinea grass and one cultivar of Blue panicum;
- Investigating the effect of three salinity and irrigation levels on physiological and agronomical plant traits in two plant cultivars;
- Establishing the impact of three saline water on nutritional features on fresh and dry forage.
