Growth Analysis of Wheat (Triticumaestivum L.) Genotypes Under Saline Condition

[Full Text]






Key Words: Wheat, saline condition, growth; RGR, NAR.



ABSTRACT Growth of eight wheat genotypes was assessed during 2010-11 under different levels of saline condition i.e.3, 6, 9 and 12 dsm-1.The wheat genotypes differed significantly for emergence, leaf area, relative growth rate and net assimilation rate. The emergence stage the least affected genotype was K9006, whereas other genotypes K9644, K9465, HD2733, and HD2329 were severely affected by salinity. Emergence of seed, leaf area, relative growth rate and net assimilation rate was reported maximum in genotypes K9006, K8434; KRL1-4 and K88. Genotypes K9644 and K9465 showed salinity sensitive.
