Abstract:

The this study two cultivars of sugarcane viz., MS-10001 and CoC-671, were evaluated for determination of salinity tolerance at different stress level as compared to control. The salinity tolerance was evaluated by determination of leaf area, shoot height, root length, chlorophyll content, chlorophyll stability index, membrane injury index. The sugarcane salinity tolerant cultivar MS-10001 showed less per cent decrease in leaf area at salt stress (0, 2, 4, 8 dSm-1), it showed less per cent decrease in shoot length and root length as compared to sensitive cultivar CoC-671. The RWC was also recorded higher in sugarcane variety MS10001 at salt stress condition as compared to CoC671 at different salt stress level. Chlorophyll a, b, and total chlorophyll content reduced at stress level but found higher in MS-10001 than the CoC-671 at both salt stress level. Chlorophyll stability index was more in MS10001 at different salt stress level compared to CoC671.
