In this study, Aydanhanım, Bülbül-89 and Tarm-92, which are double-row barley cultivars and have a great importance in terms of barley cultivation in Turkey, were used as a plant material. Six different NaCl doses (0, 3, 6, 9, 12 and 15 g/l) were applied. Germination speed on 4th day of the study, `germination power`, `root length`, `shoot length`, `fresh and dry weight` on 8th day of the study were examined. According to results; `germination speed`, `root length`, `shoot length` and `dry matter` has a significant interaction for cultivar interaction. In addition to; all parameters has a significant interaction for NaCl doses and cultivar x NaCl doses interaction`s; `root length`, `fresh weight` and `dry matter` has a significant interaction too. It has been found that Tarm-92 cultivar was higher salt tolerance than other cultivar. Keywords : Barley, Hordeum vulgare L., germination, salt stress, NaCl
