Abstract Salt stress limits soybean production in vast areas worldwide. It has been found that increases salinity resulted in decrease of chlorophyll contents in soybean leaves. Effect of foliar application of ascorbic acid and inoculation of mycorrhizal arbuscular fungi on chlophyll content of soybean was studied in saline soil with EC 4 5 mmhoscm. The experiment was laid out in split-split plot design with three replications. The treatments consisted of two variety of saline tolerant soybean non-selected soybean and F4 selected soybean in main plots ascorbic acid concentration 0 and 500 ppm in sub plots. Mycorrhizal arbuscular fungi inoculum namely without inoculum control Glomus sp-1 Glomus sp-2 Glomus sp-3 Glomus sp-4 Glomus sp-5 and combined of all mycorrhizal inoculum were the sub-sub plot treatments. The parameters observed were chlorophyll a b and total by using Henry and Grime 1993 method. The results showed that F4 selected soybean tolerant salinity foliar application of ascorbic acid inoculation of myorrhizal arbuscular fungi and interaction all of treatment significantly increased chlorophyll a b and total chlorophyll of soybean leaves in saline soil.
