Table 4 Dry biomasses of leaves and roots (g plant−1) and Na+ content (mg g−1 DW) in hot pepper leaves measured at the end of the experiment subjected to varying levels of irrigation water salinity (ECiw, dS m− 1) and two leaching fractions (LF). Mean values were calculated from four replications

From: An investigation on possible effect of leaching fractions physiological responses of hot pepper plants to irrigation water salinity
