Salinity Effects on Seedling Growth and Yield Components of Different Inbred Rice Lines

  title={Salinity Effects on Seedling Growth and Yield Components of Different Inbred Rice Lines},
  author={Aisha Shereen and Sadaf Mumtaz and Sherow Raza and Muhammad Athar Khan and Shamsuddin SOLANGI},
Water culture studies of short (seedling stage) and long term (maturity) stage were conducted to evaluate the effect of different levels of salinity (0, 50, 75 mM NaCl) on the growth, yield and yield components of different inbred rice lines. Studies at seedling stage showed significant growth reduction in term of leaf mortality and shoot fresh weight in all tested lines under salinity. However, the rate of reduction varied among different lines. Variable responses to salinity have been… CONTINUE READING
