EFFECT OF SALT STRESS ON SEED GERMINATION AND EARLY SEEDLING GROWTH OF SELECTED SPECIES OF GREEN CHILI (Capsicum) SPECIES

Abstract:

Salinity is a major and increasing problem worldwide that needs to be addressed in order to increase agricultural production. The experimental materials were five selected green chili species, such as Capsicum annuum, Capsicum frutescence, Capsicum chinense, Capsicum baccatum, and Capsicum pubescence and four NaCl concentration levels (0, 60, 120 and 180mM) for laboratory and greenhouse experiments. The experimental design was a completely randomized design in factorial combination with three replications. The following parameters such as, germination percentage, seedling shoot length, seedling root length, seedling root dry weight and number of branches per plant, shoot fresh weight and root fresh weight under greenhouse experiments were evaluated. All obtained data for germination and early seedling growth from laboratory and green house experiment were organized, analyzed, interpreted and computed statistically by one way analysis of variance (one way ANOVA) for the complete random design using SPSS version 20 windows and comparisons of means were made using list statistically significant difference (LSD).The analysis of the data showed that highly significant (p
