Response of Various Wheat Cultivars to Different Salinity Levels at Early Seedling Stage

Saeedur Rahman, Bashir Ahmad, Jehan Bakht and Mohammad Shafi

Abstract:
In order to study the response of "Various Wheat cultivate to different levels of salinity at early growth stage" a pot experiment was conducted in the green house of NWFP, Agricultural University Peshawar, Pakistan during 1990. Statistical analysis of the data revealed that various salinity levels, cultivate and their interaction had a significant (p<0.05) effect on germination, emergence, plant height, root length, fresh shoot weight and fresh root weight. It was clear from the moult that addition of salt progressively reduced germination, pliett height, root length, fresh shoot weight and fresh root weight and cumulative reduction for the parameters were maximum at salinity level of 30 dS m–1 when compared with other treatments. Wheat cultivar, mutant and LU 28s proved more salt tolerant than the other cultivate with respect to the parameters under study.
