Abstract


The cultivation of white oat in succession to irrigated rice is considered a viable alternative, mainly because of their added value and for their restorative characteristics of the soil, though their productive potential can be reduced considerably because of the soil salinization, being very important to determine salt concentration tolerated by different white oat cultivars.The objective is to evaluate, oat cultivars recommended for the state of Rio Grande do Sul under different salt concentrations in seed germination and early growth. The experimental design was completely randomized factorial 2X5, with four replications, (cultivars Barbarasul and Chiarasul, salt concentration and levels 0, 25, 50, 75 and 100 mM NaCl per liter of water). The physiological seed quality was evaluated in the laboratory by germination, first count of germination, length of shoot and root dry weight of shoot and root. Based on the results we can conclude that: germination and seedling growth of oat cultivars and Barbarasul Chiarasul are negatively affected with increasing salt concentration. In addition the response is more pronounced on the shoot than the root system. The concentration of 100 mM NaCl L-1 impossible to seed germination of both cultivars.
