Seeds of four Saudi date palm cultivars were germinated on a modified White's medium (liquid and solid) containing various concentrations of sodium, calcium, and magnesium chlorides. These salts were incorporated in the medium to simulate their concentrations in Saudi underground water commonly used for irrigation. Different germination responses were observed on the liquid and solid medium. Variations between the four test cultivars on the same medium also were noticed.
