Title : The study of genotypic and phenotypic coefficient of variations, heritability and genetic advance of seedling characteristics of taramira (Eruca sativa mill.) under Salt Stress Conditions.

Abstract :

Soil salinity is the major factor responsible for poor germination, growth and development leading to reduction in crop yield. The present study was conducted with aim to evaluate 10 genotypes of taramira at 4 levels of salinity concentrations. Observations on12 parameters were recorded including germination percentage and other seedling traits. The two genotypes RTM-1351 and RTM-1355 exhibited significant variation among all the traits and the levels of salinity concentrations. High heritability coupled with high genetic advance was observed for root fresh weight, such trait can be exploited for selection criteria for developing salinity tolerance varieties.
