Nineteen varieties of groundnut(Aracbis bypogea), 8 of mustard(Brassica nigra), 9 of coconut(Cocos nucifera), and 6 each of sesame(Sesamum indicum) and safflower(Carthemum tinctorius) were analyzed for total ash and 9 mineral nutrients. Varietal dif-ferences were significant in magnitude for zinc in sesame-, for man-ganese, molybdenum and chromium in mustard; for calcium, iron, manganese, copper, molybdenum and chromium in groundnut; for calcium, molybdenum and chromium in safflower; and for calcium, iron, copper and molybdenum in coconut. Sesame was the richest source of most of the inorganic nutrients.
