Variety, salinity level and growth stage showed highly significant (Ppod filling>flowering stage. The tolerance of a variety based on economic yield was conferred by its low Ca2+/Na+ ratio in the shoot tissues. Moreover, the variety that could mobilize Ca2+ more at flowering stage from shoot tissues to reproductive organs particularly kernel under salinity stress attained more tolerance. The excess Na+ in shoot tissues of salinity stressed groundnut does not move to flower rather a portion to the kernel. In contrast, K+ and Ca2+ move from shoot tissues to all reproductive organs including flower with being the highest to the kernel.
