ABSTRACT A pot experiment was conducted during 2010-11 in the Department of Agriculture Botany Janta P.G. College Ajeetmal AuraiyaU.P. India. Eight genotypes of wheat are selected with varying in their salt tolerance level to evaluate effect of salinity on germination growth and yield related parameters. Lower salinity 3dsm-1 did not affect the germination growth and yield attributing parameters. Higher salinity levels reduced germination growth and yield attributing parameters. Genotypes K9644 and K9465 showed maximum reduction in all these regards. Genotypes K9006 K8434 KRL1-4 K88 and HD2733 showed hardness against higher levels of salinity.
