In spite of being the most consumed pulse of the NER, lentil is cultivated sporadically on relatively poor soils and in harsh environments with a little or no fertilizer after rice crop. Therefore, there is a need of identifying lentil germplasms that is adapted to low input acidic soils to achieve remunerative productivity. The present study was conducted to evaluate root length and P- uptake of five lentil genotypes under acidic and water acarcity conditions. From the studies of root traits and P-uptake we identified three lines viz., DPL-62, IPL-220 and PL-04 which perform better in the stress conditions. The results of this study suggest that the variation in root morphology of the five varieties is pronounced, without the variation in the ability to induce chemical (rhizosphere pH) and biochemical (Aptase) change in the rhizosphere environment through root exudation.
