Effect of NaCl and Na2SO4 Salinity on Leaf Appearance Stage, Tiller Production and Percent Motality of Spring Wheat

Rana Muhammad Iqbal

Abstract:
A solution culture pot study was carried out to see the effect of two contrasting salt species i.e., NaCl and Na2SO4 on leaf extension growth of spring wheat. Na+ concentrations in both the salt species were 0, 50, 100 and 200 mM. Plants under both salt species with low Na+ concentrations had dark green leaves compared to control but yellowing and necrosis was observed with high Na+ concentrations. Almost similar trends for leaf appearance stage and tiller production were observed in both the salt species. Higher Na+ concentration suppressed both of these parameters. Nacl was found slightly more toxic than Na2SO4 and rapid mortality of plants was observed in higher salt concentrations.
