Testing of Wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) Genotypes Against Salinity and Waterlogging

Abstract:
A pot experiment was conducted to see the effect of salinity and waterlogging on five wheat genotypes. The experiment consisted of four treatments i.e., control (non-saline non-waterlogged), waterlogging, saline and salinity×waterlogging. NaCI salinity was developed prior to sowing and waterlogging was created two weeks after germination. At booting stage fully expanded second to flag leaf was collected for Na+, K+ and Cl– analysis. At harvesting grain and straw yield was recorded. The genotypes SARC-6 and Pasban-90 were found to be tolerant producing high grain and straw yield under all treatments. SARC-6 was able to manage the high concentration of Na+ and Cl– while Pasban-90 accumulated low Na+ and Cl– concentration possibly due to exclusion of these ions. The sensitive genotype SARC-5 produced low yield and could not manage the high concentration of Na+ and Cl–.
