EFFECT OF SALT (NACL) STRESS ON GERMINATION AND EARLY SEEDLING GROWTH OF FOUR VEGETABLES SPECIES
2006, 7 (2) p. 273-282
Due to increasing salinity problems, in this experiment four vegetables species were treated with different concentration of salt solution to study salt effect. Results indicated that salinity caused signifi cant reduction in germination percentage, germination rate, root and shoot lengths and fresh root and shoot weights. Liner relation was developed to fi nd relation between salt stress and plant growth and also between germination and rest of plant characters.
