Effect of Soil Salinity on Soybean Seed Growth and Development

Soybean (Glycine max L.) is an important oilseed crop that has gained primary importance in diet and industries due to its wide uses. India stands fourth in world soybean production due to its cultivation under low and marginal soils. Major soybean growing areas are affected by soil salinity due to both climatic and anthropogenic factors and compared to other countries, the average yield of soybean is less. Hence a brief understanding is necessary to know how soil salinity affects seed germination and seedling growth and its mitigation strategies.
