The present study aimed to investigate the effect of different days (0, 7 and 15th days) and salt applications (salty and saltness) on nutrient element compositions of root, shoot and leaf organs of I I field pea genotypes (which are nominate pea) and 2 pea cultivars. For this aim, the data were analyzed using three-way-ANOVA (genotypes, salt application and time). In this study determining, the effects of salt stress on nutrient element compositions of these organs, although the effects of salt application, salt by variety and salt by day interactions on Cu element in root were only found to be non-significant, genotypes, salt application, days and their interactions with 2 and 3 degree for other elements were found to be significant. In root and shoot organs, salt application increased significantly Ca, Mg and Zn amounts, but other minerals decreased compared to control group. The application in leaf increased Ca and Mg, whereas others reduced.
