Abstract: To evaluate the efficiency of drip irrigation when highly saline water is used, and to determine the appropriate pattern of leaching and leaching fractions to grow seed crops, diluted sea water (12000, 16000, and 20000 ppm) was used by dripping to grow six cultivars of wheat and barley. The leaching process was practiced by two different patterns: a) using different leaching fractions according to the salinity level of irrigation water and b) using water of relatively good quality alternatively with the saline water in irrigation. The results emphasized that it is possible to use highly saline irrigation water (20000 ppm) for leaching by drip system provided that an abundant quantity is used every irrigation (leaching fraction = 1.5). Consistent differences in wheat and barley yields have been recorded as a direct result of leaching patterns, which could be taken as a good indicator of the expected yield.
