Abstract Fodder beet (beta vulgaris) was tested on dense saline sodic soils at Bio-Saline Experimental Research Station (BERS), Sadhuki, Lahore, Pakistan tinder wheat /rice cropping system, where no other conventional winter/rabi fodder could economically be grown. Four varieties of fodder beet namely Majoral, Monored, Monoval & Polygroningia were tested for their germination (at different temperatures & salinity levels), growth and biomass production. They were grown with different sowing methods like direct seeding vs. transplanting, flat vs raised bed or ridges and off die crown vs on the crown. Their physiological (CO2 assimilation) & biochemical composition (chlorophyll, sugars, Proline & proteins) were also measured. Further to that their fertilizer requirement towards green foliage (through different cuttings) & total biomass production were tested to evaluate their best possible introduction and potential as fodder crop to benefit die small farmers having sizable salt affected lands. In addition ameliorative effect of hormone coated seeds on productivity enhancement tinder salt affected soils was also tested.
