Abstract:

Pomegranate (Punica granatum L.) is one of the hardy crop and may have potential to be grown under salt affected areas although salinity could be a limiting factor for growth and yield in its cultivation. Thus, screening of salt tolerant genotype of pomegranate is one of the most important aspects for the best utilization and improving the productivity of salt affected soils. To assess the variability among different genotypes on the basis of vegetative growth characteristics, biochemical and physico-chemical parameters etc. twenty genotypes of pomegranate were evaluated under nursery conditions. The pomegranate genotypes collected from Jaipur (03), Ajmer (05), Rajasmand (04), Udaipur (03), Pali (01), Jodhpur (01), Nagour (01), Bikaner (02), respectively were grown in polybags filled with partially reclaimed sodic soils. Different biochemical and physiological parameters like proline (μg/g FW), RWC (%), chlorophyll (mg/gFW), Na+ (%), K+ (%), K+/Na+ and vegetative growth parameters like number of roots, length of roots (cm), number and length of shoots and number of leaves were recorded after four months of planting the cuttings. Significant variations among these genotypes indicated inherited gain against salinity tolerance. On the basis of the above said parameters, this experiment may provide indicators for selection of salt tolerant pomegranate genotypes for salt affected soils.
