The goal of this study was to determine the effect of salicylic acid (50 µM) on triticale grown under salt stress. In this study, we investigated shoot and root lengths, malondialdehyde, proline, ion leakage, relative water content, chlorophyll content. The results indicated that salicylic acid is quite effective to deal with salt stress. Anatomically shoot and root lengths as well as relative water content and chlorophyll content were increased by salicylic acid under salt toxicity. Moreover malondialdehyde, proline and ion leakage were decreased by the application of salicylic acid. Overall our results indicated that salicylic acid can be used for agricultural production of triticale under salt stress.
