Principle objective was to evaluate effect of salinity on germination and salinity induced changes in Proline content and role of IAA to overcome stress. Percentage of seed germination decreases with increased concentration of salt. It is reduced from 70% to 32% at higher concentration. Proline content goes on increasing with increasing concentration of salt from 0.3%to 1.2%.It was observed that IAA helps to overcome from salt stress.


Vigna radiata, Indoleacetic acid, Proline content.
