Salinity induced changes in the growth and chemical composition of potato

Rafiq ahmad and zaib-un-nisa abdullah

Potato cv. Patrones , cardinal , multa , red bed , norland, chieftain and red lasoda were grown in soil containing various concentrations of salts at par with saline soils of Pakistan. Lower concentration of salts upto 0.4% were promotory in tuberization whereas higher salinity levels of 1% were inhibitory. Protein contents of tubers increased at low and decreased at high salinity levels in all potato varieties . total sugar content of tubers increased with increasingly concentrations of salts . in red bed total chlorophyll content decreased with increasing salt concentrations while in rest of the varieties the reduction was observed above 0.4% salt level. Total glycoalkaloids (TGA) level in all the
