  • Description: Nano particles may be more useful in comparison to bulk materials because they can pass the cell membrane of crops because of their general size. Nano-silicon or SiO2 is one of the major and frequently used engineered oxide nano particles in deferent fields. Quick germination of cultivated seeds and good seedling establishment are key factors to lentil production under salinity stress soil across arid and semi-arid regions. This present research was aimed at investigating the impacts of various nano-silicon dioxide treatments (0, 1 and 2 mM concentration) on seed germination of lentil under various NaCl concentrations (0, 50, 100 and 150 mM). For better understanding of nano-silicon by salinity stress interaction, the biplot method was used. Results showed that, germination significantly delayed by increasing salt stress and application of 1 mM nano-silicon dioxide (nSiO2) could considerably alleviate the adverse effect of salt stress on seed germination percentage, root and shoot length, seedling weight, mean germination time, seedling vigour index and seed reserve mobilization.
