Abstract: The pot culture experiment was conducted during the end of March to June, 2004 to evaluate the effect of salinity on Jatropha curcas L. Germination, initial growth parameters, rooting of cuttings in relation to applicaTfon of IBA were studied. The soil was artificially salinized by employing NaCI, CaCl2 and MgCl2 in the proportion of 5:3:2 each so as to simulate six different salinity levels viz., Natural soil (without addition of any salts externally), 2, 4, 6, 8 and 10 dSm-1 • The effect of different salinity levels on germination, survival and rooting in relation hormone application, number of leaves per plant, root and shoot length, leaf area, fresh and dry weight of leaf; shoot; roots and whole plant were also examined. Visual symptoms exhibited by plants were also examined. The performance of Jatropha curcas with regards to each of the characters studied showed an inverse relationship with the salinity level. Thus, the performance of Jatropha curcas was better in SN (Natural soil) and decreased in all salinity levels, both in plants raised by seeds as well as cuttings. The entire investigation was carried out under following two sets of experiments.
