In this study, gloria and kabarla strawberry varieties plants are taken for trial at solid medium culture. During the development, Hoaglan solution is added salt (NaCl) doses of 0 (control), 500, 1000,1500 mg L(-1). At the end of the trial, all plant parts above the soil level (aerial parts) are used for the determination of macro (N, P, K, Ca, Mg) and micro (Mn, Zn, Cu, Fe, B) elements, At the analysis done, it was determined that both of the varieties are affected from the salt stress and the accumulation levels change according to the salt doses. It was observed that the kabarla variety with the development characteristics is more tolerable to salt stress when compared with the gloria variety. It was observed that the salt applications on kabarla variety caused an increase in the accumulation of N, Ca and Mn and the accumulation of other elements led to a decrease. In the gloria variety, the increasing salt doses led to a decrease in the accumulation of all the elements whereas at the elements Zn, Fe and B in the 500 mg L(-1) application which is the lowest water dose, an increase with respect to the control was determined. In the gloria variety, increase of Zn, Fe and B at 500 mg mg L(-1) salt dose turned to a decrease again after the increase in the following doses.
