Rice lines were screened using rapid screening technique for salinity tolerance. Out of the lines tested, eight were found tolerant; five were graded as moderately tolerant and five were susceptible or highly susceptible. Two lines showed higher root /shoot ratio and were found tolerant. It appeared that screening at seedling stage and higher root/shoot ratio provides a clue about salt tolerance potential of a genotype. Based on the results of above study, further comparative studies for salt tolerance in different rice genotypes were made under the artificial salinity conditions. In general, salinity caused a marked reduction in yield and yield components in all the genotypes except a recombinant Jhona-349x Basmati-370 where a little effect was observed. Jhona- 349x Basmati-370 seems to possess better potential than other lines tested under saline environments.
