This study aims to obtain the optimum concentration of Ascorbic Acid on increasing growth and production of rice under the stress of NaCl salt. This research was carried out in the house of the Deli Tobacco Research Center, Sampali Village, Percut Sei Tuan, Deli Serdang Regency with a height of 15 m above sea level. This study used a factorial randomized block design with two treatment factors and 3 replications. The first factor was ascorbic acid concentration (A) consisting of 0, 250, 500 and 750 ppm. The second factor is the NaCl salt concentration consisting of: S0 (0 mM), S1 (40 mM), S2 (80 mM) and S3 (120 mM). The varieties used are Banyuasin varieties. The results showed that administration of ascorbic acid affected plant height, the total number of tillers and leaf area. Furthermore, salt stress decreases the vegetative growth of Rice plants.
