Raphanus Raphanistrum Subsp. Sativus [L.] or radish, is a major economic root crop species grown in the United States of America, and it is a distinct member of the Brassicaceae family. It is consumed worldwide for its crunchy texture and piquant flavor, which is often described as sharp or spicy. Globally, agricultural lands have become contaminated with salts in the soils, which can greatly affect productivity of those plots. Climate change is also elevating sea water levels, which has been shown to infiltrate aquifers, and can cause agricultural damage to croplands if used as irrigation water. This experiment tested various sodium chloride concentrations on different varieties of USDA Certified Organic R. raphanistrum subsp. sativus. seeds. The results from this study showed significant statistical differences in germination and root length for different concentrations of sodium chloride. This study also showed significant differences between varieties of R. raphanistrum subsp. sativus at different sodium chloride concentrations.
