Salt stress is considered as one of the key abiotic factor which reduces the plant productivity. Response of germinating seeds towards salt stress varies with species. This study aims to determine the effect of salt stress on germination and after germination stages of green gram. We have used different concentrations of salt, sodium chloride (50 mM, 150 mM & 250 mM) for this study. Salt stress responses were determined by assessing seedling vigour, growth, dry and fresh weight, water uptake, pigment degradation, amount of free amino acid and total protein content. The results showed that the stress adaptability will be higher in seedlings when exposed to different concentrations of salt after completing its initial stages of germination in normal water. We have observed lower salt concentration (50 mM) has a stimulatory effect on the growth of green gram seedlings. The result supports the feasibility of using slightly saline water for irrigation after the completion of initial seed germination in normal water. A detailed molecular level study will be helpful to reveal the stimulatory role of lower salt induced seedling vigour and associated stress tolerance by green gram.
