Abstract

Results reported in this study will be discussed in-order to explain the effect of salt stress on physical and chemical parameters of wheat genotypes along with their statistical interpretation. At the mean time a brief introduction of the study will be discussed which gave us the idea to conduct this research; problems caused by salt stress during the growth and development of wheat at different stages will also be highlighted. Impact of salts on root growth in the growing media will be the mean focus of discussion; priority will be given to the accumulation of toxic ions like Na+ and Cl- in both nodal and seminal roots will be the main focus of discussion. Comparison between salt tolerant and salt sensitive genotypes that was made during this experiment will be discussed in detail in-order to find out how the tolerant genotypes coped with salt stress. Brief methodology of the parameters will also be discussed; results of the under discussion experiment were also compared with the previous research works in order to find out that if these were in sync with previous research work or not. Due consideration will be given to the most interesting part of the experiment in which a comparison was made between seminal and nodal roots. Moreover comparative performance of tolerant and sensitive seminal and nodal roots of under consideration varieties will also be discussed. At the end conclusions drawn and suggestion made from the results of this experiment will be discussed which will innovative ideas for the upcoming research. Recommendation to farmers based on this research will also be the main point of discussion.
