The response of four cultivars of wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) to NaCl salinity at germination and early seedling stage was investigated. Following salinity treatments of NaCl viz., 0M, 0.01M, 0.05M, 0.10M, 0.05M and 1M were given to the seeds placed in the petriplates. The decrease in germination percentage was recorded as the concentration of NaCl increased. Increase in salt concentration also affected the seedling growth of wheat cultivars. The days to germination was increased but the C 306 cultivar showed stable performance in all the treatments. Among the cultivars under investigation C 306 cultivar appeared to be more tolerant while cultivar WH 1080 recorded to be sensitive during germination stage.
Key words: Cultivars, Wheat, Salinity, Germination and Seedling.
