The effect of chloride and sulphate dominated salinity on chlorophyll a, chlorophyll b and total chlorophyll at 25, 50 and 75 days after giving salt treatment was studied in Albizzia lebbeck (Linn.) Benth and Leucaena leucocephala (Lam.) de Wit. The chloride and sulphate soil salinity adversely affected the chlorophyll content in two plant species. The chloride salinity detrimentally affected the chlorophyll a, chlorophyll b and total chlorophyll in the two tree species.
Key words : Chloride, sulphate, salinity, chlorophyll, growth stages, Albizzia lebbeck, Leucaena leucocephala
