The high levels of naturally occurring salinity and B in the soil and the irrigation with water containing high levels of salts and B affect the growth and development of plants. This experiment aim to study the response of plants to the combination of B and salinity on plant growth and anatomy. The growth and yield of corn were measured at different B and salinity levels. The result from these experiments has revealed that salinity causes reduce in plants length without any effect of boron. Moreover, salinity increases xylem vessel thickness at the level of the root and the high levels of boron combined with high levels of salinity were able to mitigate salt effect on xylem thickness. Changes at the level of the stem were insignificant and the major effect of is on the root.
