Salt stress is one of the vital stresses consequential in decrease the yield and component of various crops including wheat (Triticum aestivum L.). Current practical was conducted to determine best variety of wheat (T. aestivum L.)  for Charsadda under saline condition. The consequence caused by salt stress on the biochemical constituent (moisture, ash, crude fiber, crude fat, carbohydrates and protein) of five different varieties of wheat seeds grown under high artificial NaCl stress. During time period of sowing-harvesting different doses of NaCl were given to the plant. Result of approximate analysis showed reduction in moisture, ash, crude fiber and fat contents with increase in NaCl stress, while protein and carbohydrates contents increased with increase in salinity. On the base of percentage difference between control and 58g (higher concentration) Sahar and Siran varieties were less effected by NaCl stress in 4 out of 6 constituent even at 58g (higher concentration) as compare to the Ta-Habib , galaxy 2013 and Janbaz.
