When roots and shoots of eight tolerant strains and two controls were sampled at 5-day intervals and analysed, there was a general tendency in shoots for HCN contents to increase up to day 10 and then gradually decline; no apparent connexion with resistance was indicated. The same tendency was true for roots, except in N13, which had a high content for 35 days, and in 555 and IS2643, which had the highest contents for the first ten days; in these three varieties, root HCN content may contribute to resistance
