Nutrient Uptake and Chemical Composition of Tobacco Plants as Affected by the Composition of the Root Atmosphere1
- D. G. Harris and
- C. H. M. van Bavel2
The roots of tobacco plants were subjected to a wide range of simulated aeration conditions. In general nutrient uptake remained relatively constant until oxygen concentrations dropped below 10%. However, a concentration of 5% carbon dioxide apparently stimulated phosphorus uptake.Please view the pdf by using the Full Text (PDF) link under 'View' to the left.
