Abstract Ion homeostasis is considered to be one of the most important mechanisms underlying salt stress tolerance. We used the Steptoe × Morex barley doubled haploid population to screen for genetic variation in response to salinity stress at an early development stage in a hydroponics system, focusing on ion homeostasis. Salinity induced a strong adverse effect on growth of the parents and their derived population, with Steptoe as the more tolerant parent. Steptoe maintained higher concentrations of K+, Na+ and Cl- in the roots and a similar shoot/root ion ratio (
