Germination and Seedling Growth of Rice (Oryza sativa L.) Under Saline Conditions

Iftikhar Ahmad, Naeem Iqbal, Muhammad Iqbal, Zahoor Aslam and Ejaz Rasul    

Abstract: The studies were undertaken to investigate the response of rice cultivars under saline conditions. Salinity upto 10 dSm–1 did not affect germination percentage in all varieties but the same level of salinity significantly affected plant height, fresh as well as dry weight of root and shoot and total number of tillers per plant. Germination percentage was not affected in NR1 and NR6 even at 20 dSm–1 salinity level but BAS 370 was severely affected (70.00 percent) at this level of salinity. Regarding parameters studied, NR6 and IR6 showed adaptability under saline conditions.
