Abstract

Effects of various combinations of nutrient solution salinity (0.3, 171, and 342 mM NaCl), photosynthetically active radiation (PAR) of 600 or 1150 μmol/(m2 s), and type of nitrogen nutrition (amide-N or nitrate-N) on the productivity and the content of accumulated mineral nutrients and free amino acids were studied in Salicornia europaea plants. At PAR of 600 μmol/(m2 s), plant productivity increased with elevation of salinity level; at 1150 μmol/(m2 s), the maximum productivity was observed in the plants grown at 171 mM of NaCl. The content of free amino acids in shoots, regardless of PAR, decreased with growing salinity level, whereas Na content, on the opposite, increased. Glutamic acid, rather than proline, was shown to be the main organic osmolyte in this plant species. Comparison of the productivity of plants grown on solutions with amide (urea) or nitrate nitrogen showed that higher biomass accumulation was achieved in the former case.
