An investigation of the relationship of the soil chlorine content to the leaf chlorine of salt affected vines in the Murray irrigation areas is recorded.
The lesions due to excessive soil salinity are described, and it is shown that there is a close relationship between manifest salt injury, leaf chlorine, and soil chlorine.
The chlorine content of the vine leaf is shown to be of considerable value in defining conditions to which the vine is subject.
