Effect of Salt Stress on Germination and Seedling Growth of Barley (Hordeum vulgare L.)

Shazia Naseer, A. Nisar and M. Ashraf    

Abstract: A laboratory experiment was conducted to determine the effect of salt stress on germination and seedling growth of two barley varieties, Jow-83 and Jow-87, during winter 1996-97. The results showed that the germination percentage, root and shoot lengths and fresh and dry weights decreased in both barley varieties with increase in salt level. However, variety Jow-83 showed better response at all salinity levels.
