Abstract

Wheat is an important crop plant cultivated worldwide on a large scale so as to meet food requirement. As every other plant wheat plants also gets exposed to several abiotic stress which adversely affect the growth and productivity. Salt stress is one crucial abiotic stress which is known to hamper growth of several plant species. In the present study five different wheat varieties (HD2687, HD2329, C306, PBW343, HD2307) were selected and were grown in presence of different concentrations of NaCl (100mM, 200mM, 250mM). Increasing concentration of NaCl was found to adversely affect germination rate, shoot and root length. Chlorophyll content was found to decrease in plants under salt stress whereas proline content enhanced as compared to control plants.
