In a field experiment carried out to determine the relative Sr90 content of wheat, oats, alfalfa, and timothy grown in the open compared with that of the same crops grown under clear plastic tents, absorption of Sr90 for the uncovered crops exceeded that of the covered for all crops. The Sr90 content of flour and bran milled from wheat grown in the open was considerably greater than that of the same fractions milled from wheat which was covered at the flowering stage. However, the ratios of Sr90 in the flour to that in the bran were similar in the two situations.
