The experiment was conducted in a field of Biology department /Faculty of Science and Health / Koya University / Kurdistan region, located at 44o E, 33 o4N and 570 m of altitude above sea level. A factorial experiment with randomized complete block design (R.C.B.D.) with three replications was conducted to study the combined effect of two oat varieties (POSSUM and ICARDA TALL) and salinity (NaCl) with four concentrations 0(tap water), 0.5, 1 and 2%  on Avena sativa L. plants. NaCl stress inhibited plant growth and had a significant effect on the plant height, number of leaves, diameter of plant, leaf area, root length, flag leaf area, length of spike and shoot dry matter. Also, irrigation with saline water was decreased on some vegetative growth such as leaves chemical content and some stomata characteristics as compared with control. Overall, these results showed that plant growth of ICARDA TALL varieties is a potentially useful candidate gene for salinity tolerance.
