Abstract
Tolerant varieties of paddy (Jaya and PR-106) have faster rate of seed germination under salt stress condition than sensitive varieties (M1-48, Palman-579 and Basmati-370) due to early induction of amylase activity, higher rate of water absorption, followed by rapid decrease in starch and greater release of soluble sugars. This attributes to adaptive/susceptibility mechanisms under salt stress conditions.
