Macro- and Micronutrient Distribution within Ladino Clover (Trifolium repens L.)1
- S. R. Wilkinson and
- C. F. Gross2
Ladino clover grown in greenhouse solution culture was separated into leaflets, petioles, stolons, flowers, peduncles, crowns, and roots and each part analyzed for P, K, Ca, Mg, Mn, Fe, Cu, B, Al, and Zn content. Leaflets and petioles of three different ages were also analyzed for these 10 elements. Phosphorus was concentrated in flowers; Al in leaflets; and Mg, Mn, and Fe in the roots. With increasing age of leaves the P and Zn contents markedly declined, whereas Ca increased. Phosphorus treatments affected P concentrations in leaflets without appreciably affecting P distribution patterns.Please view the pdf by using the Full Text (PDF) link under 'View' to the left.
