Growth response was obtained only where P was added, and yields decreased with increasing salinity. For a given salinity level, yields were much higher where fertilized with P. Evapotranspiration per unit dry weight of leaves was reduced by P fertilization and decreased with increasing salinity on the P, K and PK treatments. Plant composition generally reflected the cation composition of the soil solution.
