Salt stress is one of the main constraints for successful crop production throughout the world. Different physiological and morphological plant attributes help in prediction of plant growth and yield under salt stress. The core objective of current research was to characterize physiological and morphological parameters of different varieties of radish (Raphanus sativus) involved in salt stress resistance. Our results exhibited that morphological and physiological parameters including total soluble proteins, total soluble sugars, root length and leaf area had strong correlation with salt stress. The reduced quantity of morphological and physiological features excluding reducing sugars exhibited low coefficient of variation along with positive and significant correlation with yield of the plants. These morphological and physiological characteristics of crop may be used to assume salt stress tolerance in crop.
