Abstract: Sodium and other elements of salts are persistent in recycled water. To obtain the basic information required before using halophyte tamarisk (Tamarix tetranda Pall) and “energy willow” (Salix viminalis L. Sp. Klon Marzecinski KLV 1052) to phytoremediation, we investigated the effects of saline effluent irrigation on the growth, survival, Na partitioning and the ability of uptake of Mg, Ca and the main macroelements, like N, P and K by plants. In the vegetation period the sodification effect was negligible according to the soil parameters. The highest sodium uptake by the plants was observed at the low-salt treatment (TDS: 369±57 mg/L).
