dc.description.abstractCrops of CS15 camelina and InVigor 9590 canola grown in saline rooting media were evaluated for plant emergence, height growth, grain yield, and oil production. The experiment utilized Canada’s Salinity Tolerance Testing Facility featuring a controlled environment simulating field conditions. Test plants were grown in sand tanks flushed four times daily with hydroponic solutions consisting of nutrients and salts dominated by sulphate anions targeting electrical conductivity (ECsol) treatments of 1.4 (nutrients only), 3, 6, 10, 15, 21, and 28 dS m−1. A comparison of the mid-salinity tolerance indices for the two crops indicated that the camelina registered about half of that for the canola. This difference narrowed for the salinity at the slight and severe ends of the total range.en_US
