Herb Tolerance to Salinity
Answered by: Conrad Richter
Question from: Jake Fletcher
Posted on: June 15, 2006

Where could information on herb tolerance to salinity (ppm levels) in irrigation water be sourced, or can you help with this information?

We have not seen much information on salinity tolerance in herbs. We suspect that the kind of detailed data you are looking for does exist, but needs to be compiled from research reports and from data collected by commercial growers such as hydroponic growers. Inge Poot, our online horticulture expert, compiled a list of salt tolerant culinary and medicinal herbs based on data in our internal database, but this list is of limited value for your purposes.
