This investigation was aimed to screen stress tolerance of Vigna radiate, Vigna mungo and Vigna unguiculata by using media containing sucrose andNaCl andmodificationwithKinetin (KN) and IndoleAceticAcid (IAA). Germination of seeds was observed and biochemical effect was observed by estimation of that amino acids, proline and carbohydrates. It was clear that, the present studies, plant tissue culture technique have enormous potential for the improvement of food crops and that plant tissue culture can equip it with resistance to saline environment.
