In vitro Effect of Salt on the Vigor of Potato (Solanum tuberosm L.) Plantlets

Farhatullah, Rashid Mahmood and Raziuddin    

Abstract: The effects of NaCl stress on in vitro induced potato plantlets of variety of potato Solanum tuberosm L.) commercial variety cardinal was studied at Potato Research Center, Abbottabad, NWFP, Pakistan. Five NaCl treatments, each consisting of 0, 1, 2, 3 and 4% were used. Viability percentage, fresh weight of plantlet and height of plantlet was decreased by given range levels of NaCl. The effect of all treatments was very drastic on length of roots and number of roots per plantlet where no response was recorded. The treatment of 4% NaCl depressed all the parameters understudy. The results indicate that the variety "Cardinal" is not salt tolerant, even at 1% salt concentration.
