In this study we investigated the effects of different concentrations of salicylic acid (0, 50, 100 and 150 ppm) that were sprayed on one age seedlings of myrtle (Myrtus communis L.) with different levels of NaCl (0, 25, 50, and 100mM) on content of total sugers, sodium, potassium, Phosphorous and potassium to sodium. total sugers showed The interaction effect of salt level and salicylic acid concentration on the total sugars was significant (P<0.05) indicating the total sugars was obtained at 50 mM salt and 50 ppm salicylic acid. Salt stress had a significant effect (P<0.01) on the ratio of potassium to sodium, potassium, sodium and Phosphorousus and the highest effect was obtained at 100mM salt concentration (in contrast to the ratio of potassium to sodium).
