ABSTRACT

Seven varieties of Brassica campestris were tested for germination percentage, days to germinate and plant height under different salinity levels of soil. The variations due to salinity levels, varieties and variety x salinity were significant for different characters. The regression coefficient estimates (curve estimation) indicated variable degrees of increase or decrease in performance as influenced by different salinity levels. The performance of the variety Safal in germination percent is the best followed by Tori-7, Sampad and Kallyania. Safal showed the best performance in days for germination followed by Sonali, Sampad and Dholi. Dholi and Sonali performed better than others in respect of plant height. Considering all the characters the performance of Sonali, Sampad and Dholi is much better than others against different levels of salinity.
