This study was conducted to evaluate the effect of salinity on concentration of potassium (K), sodium (Na) and chloride (Cl) ions, in sweet lime budded on five citrus rootstocks, including Bakraii (mandarin x sweet lime), Volcameriana, Sour orange, Sweet lime and Mexican lime in a glasshouse, using a randomized completely design with factorial arrangement and four replications. Rootstocks had great effect on the concentration of ions in scion. Concentration and distribution of ions were significantly different in control and other treatments. Salinity increased Na and Cl ions in shoots and roots, but the rate of increase varied among rootstocks and treatments. Lowest concentration of Na and Cl ions were in shoot of scion on Volkameriana. Under salinity stress, K concentration increased in shoots of scion on Sour orange and Bakraei and decreased it on other rootstocks. Salinity increased K concentration in roots of all rootstocks except for Mexican lime.
