Simulated rain removed relatively small amounts of minerals from ripe wheat and flax plants which had been grown under field conditions. On the other hand considerably greater amounts of minerals were leached, under the same conditions, from ripe wheat plants grown in the greenhouse.

Pot watered, greenhouse plants showed more leachable mineral elements at the ripe stage, than foliage wetted plants, suggesting that leaching is a continuous process.
