Abstract

Seed of 20 wheat (Triticum aestifIUIIJ L.) genotypes were subjected to saUnity stress
during germination and seeding growth along with control. The germination percentag~and
seeding growth declin~d under salinity stress. 11le genotype Ra,j-3077 and Kharchia-65 were
most tolerant to salinity with respect to seed germination and seeding vigour, while Ra,j-4530
and RaJ-3934 were the most suspectible genotypes under saUnlty.
