Meryem Brakez, M. C. Harrouni, Naima Tachbibi, Salma Daoud.

Abstract
In this study the effect of NaCl and seawater, compared to a control with distilled water, on the seed germination of Chenopodium quinoa were investigated. All seeds germinated in all treatments: control and both NaCl and seawater treatments. However saline treatments delayed germination compared to the control seawater causing more delay than NaCl. The hypocotyls and radicle lengths and dry weights were affected more by NaCl than by seawater. The radicles were the most affected by salt stress compared to hypocotyls.

Key words: Chenopodium quinoa, Germination, NaCl, Seawater
