Wheat is the major staple food crop worldwide and frequently cultivated on saline soil. Salinity is the serious factor hampering wheat productivity with adverse effect on germination, growth and final economic yield. This study was carried out to evaluate six F2 segregating populations at PindiBhattiyan, Pakistan under normal and saline conditions during 2013-14. Individual plants of each population were selected and evaluated on the basis of plant height, number of tillers, spike length, spikelets per spike, grain per spike, grains weight per spike, 100 grain weight and average grain yield per plant under saline and normal environments using biplot analysis. Biplot analysis appeared valuable screening tool to identify the slat tolerant wheat genotypes due to its graphical nature. Based on biplot plants of each F2 population are classified into four groups. First group A contained the F2plant with high saline tolerance suitable for saline environment. Second group B having the F2 plant with good performance under normal condition. 3rd group C and 4th group D having the poor performing F2 plant in both normal and saline environmental condition.
