The present investigation was conducted during two consecutive years 2012 and 2013 to understand the possible mechanism of salinity tolerance to wheat (Triticum aestivum
L.) under waterlogging condition. Fifteen genotypes of wheat were screened on the basis of survival of the seedling kept under waterlogging for 10 days in sodic field. Five centimeter deep waterlogging was created for ten days at 30-day stage of seedling by providing irrigation and at 40 DAS water was drained from field. Soluble sugar and starch content in leaves decreased in all the wheat varieties under water logging condition as compared to non-water logging condition. Potassium and calcium content in leaves significantly decreased with water logging treatment in all the wheat varieties. Greater adverse effect of water logging was observed in susceptible varieties. Manganese content in leaves increased with water logging treatment. Under water logging condition maximum increment was obtained in Susceptible then tolerant varieties.
