Salinity, drought, and heavy metal stresses are the major abiotic stresses affecting the crop production throughout the world ( Ali et al., 2017 ; Osakabe et al., 2014 ; Parihar et al., 2015 ; Rizwan et al., 2016 ; Saifullah et al., 2018

Soil salinization is a growing problem throughout the world, particularly in arid and semiarid regions such as the southwestern United States, where saline and/or sodic soils are a common occurrence of irrigated lands. Saline soils can negatively

Soil salinity is becoming an increasing problem for production of blueberry ( Vaccinium section Cyanococcus ), particularly in arid and semiarid regions. Under such conditions, salts, which can originate from soil parent material (weathered
