Studies of Pearl Millet under Salinity Stress at Early Growth Stage
Jehan Bakht , M. Banarus khan and Mohammad Shafi

Abstract:
A pot experiment was conducted at NWFP Agricultural University Peshawar Pakistan during 1998 to study the effect of different salinity levels on pearl millet at early growth stage. The experimental results revealed that the performance of various millet varieties evaluated was significantly different for shoot fresh weight, shoot dry weight, shoot Na+ content and shoot K+ concentration at two growth periods i.e. 15 and 30 days after salt application. Millet genotype ICMV-94151 was found to have maximum shoot fresh weight, shoot dry weight, shoot K+ concentration and lowest shoot Na+ at 15 and 30 days after salt application. Increasing salinity levels had significantly reduced shoot fresh weight, shoot dry weight and shoot K+ at both growth stages. Three millet cultivars ICMV-95151, ICMV-95490 and Gana white performed significantly better than the other when exposed to different levels of salinity.
