Variation in Growth and Ion Uptake in Salt Tolerant and Sensitive Rice Cultivars under NaCl Salinity

Sara Zafar, M. Yasin Ashraf, G. Sarwar, Saqba Mahmood, Abida Kausar and Iftikhar Ali    

Abstract: Pot cultured experiment consisting of two rice cultivars Basmati-370 (Salt sensitive) and IR6 (salt tolerant) with five replicates each having two different salinity levels was conducted at wire house of Soil Biology Division, NIAB, Faisalabad using randomized complete block design. Growth and chemical analyses of plant samples were carried out at different harvest levels. Results indicated that increasing levels of salinity furnished proportional relationship with increase in Na+ and Cl¯ content with decrease in growth of Basmati-370 whereas K, Ca, N and P content were highly significant in IR-6.
