Abstract: The morphological and biochemical response of calli and seedlings of different rice cultivars were compared under acid saline conditions. Calli of both tolerant and sensitive varieties showed severe stress symptoms like browning and necrosis, but the onset of stress symptoms was delayed in Pokkali. Seedlings of Pokkali showed minimal stress symptoms in lower salinities, and curling and senescence of older leaves in higher salinities although plants revived on amelioration of stress. Seedlings of the other varieties showed severe stress symptoms even at low salinities and plant death at higher salinities. Salt stress induced accumulation of the putative osmoprotectant proline in calli and seedlings of all varieties. Proline accumulation was higher in sensitive varieties than in Pokkali. These results indicate that proline accumulation is not directly correlated with salt tolerance in rice.
