Na+concentrations in selected accessions from Iran. Na+ concentrations in various organs of selected accessions from Iran and checks. Note that while FL478 (tolerant check) has lower concentrations in its leaf blade and sheath than a sensitive line such as Nipponbare, it actually contains an increased concentration in roots. This is typical of many tolerant Na+-excluding lines, but the relationship is broken in these lines from Iran (Larome, Massan Mulat, Mulai); which contain low Na+ concentrations in roots in addition to aerial portions.
