Effect of Salinity on Germination, Growth, Yield And Yield Attributes of Wheat

[Full Text]






Key words: salinity, tolerance, growth, yield, wheat.



ABSTRACT: A pot experiment was conducted during 2010-11 in the Department of Agriculture Botany Janta P.G. College Ajeetmal, Auraiya(U.P.), India. Eight genotypes of wheat are selected with varying in their salt tolerance level, to evaluate effect of salinity on germination, growth, and yield related parameters. Lower salinity (3dsm-1) did not affect the germination, growth and yield attributing parameters. Higher salinity levels reduced germination, growth and yield attributing parameters. Genotypes K9644 and K9465 showed maximum reduction in all these regards. Genotypes K9006, K8434, KRL1-4, K88 and HD2733 showed hardness against higher levels of salinity.
