Plant tissue, roots and shoots of two tobacco varieties (Nc 2326 and Coker 254) grown in artificial saline soil has been analyzed. The results showed that sodium and chloride contents were greater in the shoots than in the roots in both these varieties at both the harvests. These contents increased as the levels of salinity increased. Sodium and chloride contents of both shoots and roots of variety NC 2326 were higher than that of Coker 254 at the highest levels of salinity. Both of the varieties accumulate low Na and Cl contents in the root and shoot tissues and are salt sensitive but Coker 254 is more salt sensitive than NC 2326.
