Literature cites that the reduction in the leaf area is an important adaptive mechanism of plants cultivated under salt excess and hydric stress, seen that, under such conditions, it is convenient for the plants to start the reduction of the transpiratory process and, consequently, to decrease the loading of [Na.sup.+] and [Cl.sup.-] in the xylem and the conservation of water in the plant tissues, according to no (Sucre & Suares, 2011).
The highest stomatal index is advantageous in the rainy season, as it increases the stomatal conductance, transpiratory and photosynthetic rate (SILVA et al., 2005), helping plants to produce substances necessary for their survival more quickly.
Genotypic variations in the photosynthetic metabolism of rice plants such as the rate of C[O.sub.2] net assimilation, stomatal conductance, intercellular C[O.sub.2] concentration, and transpiratory rate have been reported in the literature (YOSHIDA et al., 1976; GU et al., 2012; LORENCONI, 2014).
