  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.

  Salinity (NaCl) induced changes in protease activities and associated metabolic changes in three cotton varieties (NIAB-Karishma, NIAB-86 and K-115) were studied during germination and early seedling stages under controlled conditions. The increase in salinity of the medium resulted in the decrease of protease activities in all varieties, however it was more pronounced in NIAB-86. Decrease in mobilization of reserve protein and reduced concentrations of total free amino acids with increasing salinity were recorded in all the cotton varieties. Variety K-115 showed better performance than others. It showed highest germination followed by NIAB-Karishma and NIAB-86. The variety K-115 also had higher to mobilization capacity and had higher levels of total free amino acids and less reserve protein during germination and early seedling growth stages.
