Various parameters were evaluated under conditions of salt stress. After a recovery phase by irrigation without salt, the same parameters are measured. Our results show that there is a positive correlation between the performance of cultivars in the greenhouse and in the responses of callus under salt stress. These results suggest that resistance to salinity in durum wheat, in the plantlet depends, in part, of the existence of mechanisms operating at the cellular level. Cal response to salinitys is not always similar to that of the plantlet and the consideration of these two levels of organization is needed to better understand the complex mechanisms of resistance durum wheat to salinity.
