Field experiment was conducted at Directorate of Seed Research, Mau for three consecutive years (2007-08 to 2010-11) with the seed priming of one year old two rice (Oryza sativa L.) varieties (Pusa Sugandha 5 and Sambha Mahsoori) with 0.25% KNO3 followed by coating with polykote (3 ml/kg seed) + complete Hoagland solution (@5ml/kg seed) and polykote + (-) Zn, (-) Fe, (-) Mn and (-) Cu Hoagland solutions separately. Priming with KNO3 salt followed by coating with polykote + complete Hoagland solution significantly enhanced the germination, seedling vigour and yield attributes in both the varieties over unprimed and uncoated control under salt stress condition. Variety Sambha Mahsoori was found superior over Pusa Sugandh 5 in respect of above characters.
