Abstract:
Salinity is considered as the most important abiotic stress limiting fruit production and fruit plants such as bael is known to survive under this stress by involving many mechanisms. In this context, the present study was carried out to evaluate the impact of salinity on leaf health and chlorophyll content in five bael cultivars i.e. NB-5, NB-9, CISHB-1, CISHB-2 and Pant Aparna. Thus, an experiment was carried out at horticultural farm and laboratory of Department of Horticulture, Institute of Agricultural Sciences, Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi. The salinity levels induced stress on bael seedlings were 5.40 dSm<sup>-1</sup>, 9.20 dSm<sup>-1</sup>, 13.30 dSm<sup>-1 </sup>and 16.80 dSm<sup>-1</sup>. Results showed that increasing salinity stress, for all cultivars, had a negative impact on leaf and chlorophyll contents. Cultivar NB-5 satisfactorily tolerated highest salinity level (16.80 dSm<sup>-1</sup>) comparing to other cultivars by less accumulation of salts in their leaves and showed higher level (1.85 mg/g fresh weight basis) of chlorophyll content in bael leaves. NB-9 and CISHB-<sup>1</sup>also maintaining usually higher values of both the parameters and consider as medium salinity tolerant.
