Lines from a cross between two accessions of rice (IR4630-22-2-5-1-3 and IR15324-117-3-2-2) were subjected to salinity in tanks which were filled with sand and flooded with quarter strength Hoagland solution containing 50 mM NaCl (ECiw 6 dS.m(-1)). Salinity generally reduced vigor, stunted growth, reduced straw and grain weight, induced panicle sterility with large variations between lines. From these studies, ten lines have been identified which possess the potential of satisfactory yield under saline conditions.
