Measurement Of Plant Nutrient Uptake

Plant nutrient uptake can be determined by measuring nutrient depletion in the root environment and by quantifying nutrient content in plant tissues. 1. Measurement of nutrient depletion in the root environment This method is based on determining the difference in the amount of a certain ion in the root environment throughout a given period of time. This difference is associated with plant nutrient uptake, which can be calculated as (V1-C1)-(V2-C2) (Cabrera et al., 1995). In this equation, V1...
