Iron (Fe) and manganese (Mn) are essential nutrients for plants. Application of high levels of either Fe or Mn is often accompanied by relatively low levels of uptake for the other nutrient. The antagonistic relationship of these nutrient elements may occur either during absorption by roots or during translocation from roots to shoot. A greenhouse study was(More)
A greenhouse experiment was conducted to evaluate the effectiveness of arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungi in phytoremediation of lead (Pb)-contaminated soil by vetiver grass. Experiment was a factorial arranged in a completely randomized design. Factors included four Pb levels (50, 200, 400, and 800 mg kg(-1)) as Pb (NO3)2, AM fungi at three levels (non(More)
To determine the tolerance of soybean genotypes to Mn toxicity, a green house study was conducted. Hayesville sandy loam (clayey, oxidic, mesic, Typic Hapludult), high in “manganese”, was used for the experiment. The experimental design was split-plot with three replications. Forty-one different soybean genotypes were planted in pots at two different pH(More)
ARTICLE INFO ABSTRACTIn the past few decades, accumulation of heavy metals, such as lead (Pb), in soils has increased as a result of human activities.The environmental hazard associated with soil enrichment in heavy metals is related to their mobility and plant availability. Application of various materials such as humic may influence the amount of Pb taken(More)
Salinity and nitrogen (N) deficiency are growth limiting factors for most plants including spinach in arid and semiarid areas. A greenhouse experiment was conducted to evaluate the effect of salinity levels and N rates on growth and concentration of macro and micronutrients in spinach aerial parts. Treatments included four salinity levels 0 (S0), 1000 (S1),(More)
