dc.descriptionFrom the Proceedings of the 1975 Meetings of the Arizona Section - American Water Resources Assn. and the Hydrology Section - Arizona Academy of Science - April 11-12, 1975, Tempe, Arizonaen_US
dc.description.abstractThe response of saltcedar (Tamarix pentandra Pall.) to several antitranspirants was evaluated in laboratory, greenhouse and small -scale field studies using potted plants. Anti - transpirants may provide a treatment alternative to the eradication of saltcedar thickets for water salvage objectives. Transpiration rates were reduced by 23 to 44 percent for 7 to 20 days in the greenhouse, and by 18 to 32 percent for 2 to 8 days in the field. No serious damage to the plants was apparent. One of the most effective antitranspirants considered for a hypothetical saltcedar thicket and a hypothetical operational treatment program, based on estimated cost data, would result in reallocated water costing approximately 55 dollars per acre foot for a single treatment. About 19 acres of saltcedar thicket would have to be treated to provide one acre -foot of reallocated water in this case.
