TAILIEUCHUNG - Physiological basis of water logging tolerance in wheat at vegetative stage under sodic soil

The present field investigation resulted; highest plant height was recorded in KRL 99 while minimum in HD 2851. While less in tolerant varieties; KRL 3-4 and KRL 99 at 40 and 80 DAS. Water logging induced more reduction in tiller in susceptible variety HD 2009 followed by HD 2851 and very less reduction in tolerant varieties KRL 3-4 and KRL 99 at 40 and 80 DAS. The biomass plant-1 was more depleted in wheat susceptible varieties HD 2009 and HD 2851, while minimum in KRL 99 followed by KRL 3-4 at 40,80 DAS. Chlorophyll content extent of decrease was less in KRL 3-4 and KRL 99 as compared to HD 2851 and HD 2009. | Physiological basis of water logging tolerance in wheat at vegetative stage under sodic soil
