  journal={Plant and Soil},
An effecient, reproducible and simple mass screening technique for the selection of salt tolerant rice lines has been developed. Fourteen-day old seedlings raised in silica gravel culture were transplanted to foam-plugged holes in polystyrene (thermopal) sheets floated over 100 dm3 of nutrient solution in painted galvanised-iron growth tanks lined with plastic (120×90×30cm). Three days after transplanting, NaCl was added to salinize the medium in increments, at the rate of 25 mol m-3 per 24… CONTINUE READING
