Comparative Performance of Brassica Varieties/Lines Under Saline Sodic Condition

M. Sadiq, M. Jamil, S. M. Mehdi, M. Sarfraz and G. Hassan    

Abstract: To investigate a suitable and more tolerant brassica variety/line for salt affected soil, a field experiment was conducted for three consecutive years (1997-1999) at soil salinity research institute, Pindi Bhattian. Performance of seven brassica varieties/lines i.e., peela raya, SPS-23-1, SPS-23-2, ORI-56-6, P-8-2, RL-18 and brown raya were studied in ameliorated and non-ameliorated soils. A field having ECe 13.43 d sm-1, pH 9.69 and SAR 65.97 (m mol l-1) ½ was selected, half of which was ameliorated by applying gypsum @ 100 % G.R. and brassica varieties/lines were sown. All cultural practices were applied to the crop. The results showed that germination percentage, plant height, 1000 grain weight and grain yield were maximum in ameliorated than non-ameliorated soil during all the three years. Among varieties/lines, grain yield was in order of P-8-2, OR1-50-6. It is clear from the results that P-8-2 variety gave the highest grain yield (511.68 kg ha-1) among all other varieties/lines in ameliorated/non-ameliorated soils.
