EFFECT OF SALANITY ON GERMINATION OF TRIFOLIUM REPENS, DACTYLIS GLOMERATA AND MEDICAGO SATIVA.
Effect of salinity on three imported seeds i.e. Trifolium repens, Dactylis glomerata and Medicago sativa was studied during the present study. Experiments were conducted in salinity induced soils. Seed germination and speed of germination were recorded. Study showed in higher salinity exhibit no germination. In garden soil Trifolium repens showed highest percentage of germination i.e. 56.66% ±1.55 while percentage of germination of Medicago sativa and Dactylis glomerata was 50% ±1.00 and 37% ± 1.155 respectively. It was also observed that Dactylis glomerata is highly salinity sensitive in comparison to other two species.
