The aim of this study was to determine the effects of different salt proportions in the irrigation water (0, 25, 50, 100 mM NaCl) on pea plant’s (Pisum sativum L. cv. Jofs) macro and micro elements involved in its growth. It has been observed that statistically the different salt proportion affects significantly the quantities of some nutritional elements. The essential elements proportions in roots (P, Mg, S, B, Cu, Mn and Zn) and in stem (K, Ca, Mg, Na, B, Fe, Mn, and Zn) are different. Common essential elements in roots and stem are Mg, B, Mn and Zn.
