Abstract In this study, effects of various NaCl concentration were investigated on the germination of fenugreek (Trigonella foenum-graecum L.) seeds at different temperatures (10, 15, 20 ˚C), at the laboratory of Department of Field Crops, Faculty of Agriculture, University of Erciyes, in the year 2009. Different concentrations of NaCl (5, 10, 15, 20 dS m-1) were applied to Gurarslan fenugreek variety. Mean germination time; shoot length, root length, fresh shoot weight, dry shoot weight, fresh root weight and dry root weight measurements were assessed out at 15th day of germination counts for the seeds. It was evident that mean germination time extended with increasing NaCl concentrations at all temperatures. Seeds were more tolerant against NaCl concentrations at 20 ˚C compared with other temperatures.
