Selection Criteria for Salt Tolerance in Wheat Cultivars at Seedling Stage

Zahid Pervaiz, Mohammad Afzal, Yang Xiaoe and Luo Ancheng

Abstract:
Fourteen wheat cultivars were tested against various salinity levels to develop selection criteria for salt tolerance on the basis of different growth characteristics. It was concluded that assessment of tolerance to salinity based on different growth characteristics could not be considered worthwhile. In general, with the increase of salinity, shoot and root yield, shoot length, root length in some respect, number of total and green leaves and potassium contents decreased gradually where as sodium contents increased both in shoot and root of all the cultivars tested. Highly significant correlation was observed among, absolute shoot yield and absolute plant height, relative shoot yield and relative plant height, absolute and relative shoot root yield, absolute and relative plant height and absolute and relative green leaves.
