The presented research is about the effect of seed treatment with γ-radiation on the development of the maize plant and on the chlorophyll synthesis under salt stress. It has been revealed that separately high doses of radiation and low or high NaCl concentrations inhibit the plant growth as well as chlorophyll synthesis in the leaves, while pre-sowing irradiation of the seeds with a dose of 50 Gy stimulates the growth of the plant and chlorophyll synthesis even at high concentrations of NaCl.

Key words:    biometric indices, chlorophyll, maize (Zea mays), presowing seed irradiation, salt stress
