Abstract

The present study investigated whether magneto-priming with tryptophan or ascorbic acid could alter the responses of barley seeds germinated under water salinity levels (2000, 4000, 6000 and 8000ppm). Magnetic seeds were irrigated by solutions containing tryptophan or ascorbic acid. Non-priming seeds were taken as control. Seed germination (%), germination index (GI), germination speed index (SGI), germination rate (GR, day), mean germination rate (MGR, day),seedling shoot length (cm), seedling root length (cm), seedling length (cm),seedling fresh weight (g), seedling dry weights, (g) seedling vigor 1 (SV1) and seedling vigor 2 (SV2) as affected by magneto-priming treatments were studied. Data showed that germination characters improved with magneto- priming treatments under different salinity levels. Tryptophan and ascorbic acid as magneto-priming gave higher values as to seed germination and seed vigour under different salinity levels. It also significantly increased some activities of enzymes, peroxidase, Polyphenoloxidase and chitinase. During seedling growth under salinity conditions, the primed seeds significantly increased accumulation enzymes with salinity levels until 6000ppm after that it was decreased. This suggests that magneto priming seed with at a suitable concentration can improve germination and seedling growth under high-saline soils.
