Abstract

NaCl salinity in the range of 50 to 200 mM increased Na+ accumulation in the root and shoot of 7-, 14- and 21-day-old maize seedlings. The accumulation of Na+ and Cl- increased but K+ accumulation decreased with the increase in NaCl concentration from 50 to 200 mM in the root and shoot of maize in all the three ages.

Key words: Salinity, NaCl, Ion transport, Root, Shoot, Maize
