This study focussed on the effect of increasing nitrogen (N) supply on root uptake and root-to-shoot translocation of zinc (Zn) as well as retranslocation of foliar-applied Zn in durum wheat (Triticum durum). Nutrient solution experiments were conducted to examine the root uptake and root-to-shoot translocation of (65) Zn in seedlings precultured with(More)
Whether root Zn uptake during grain filling or remobilization from pre-anthesis Zn stores contributes more to grain Zn in wheat is subject to an on-going debate. This study investigated the effects of N nutrition and post-anthesis Zn availability on the relative importance of these sources. Durum wheat plants were grown in nutrient solution containing(More)
The importance of seed Ni reserves for plant growth and N metabolism is poorly understood. This study investigated the effects of both seed Ni and externally supplied Ni on the impact of foliarly-applied urea and N-nutritional status of soybean. Soybean seeds were produced by growing plants in nutrient solutions containing different Ni levels, and their(More)
Deficiencies of zinc (Zn) and iron (Fe) are global nutritional problems and caused most often by their limited dietary intake. Increasing Zn and Fe concentrations of staple food crops such as wheat is therefore an important global challenge. This study investigated the effects of varied nitrogen (N) and Zn supply on the total uptake, remobilization and(More)
Phosphorus (P)-induced zinc (Zn) deficiency is one of the most commonly studied antagonistic interactions in plant nutrition. However, there are many controversial reports about P–Zn interaction, possibly related to growth conditions. In this study, the effects of P supply on the root uptake and tissue concentrations of Zn as well as the development of Zn(More)
Glyphosate drift to nontarget crops causes growth aberrations and yield losses. This herbicide can also interact with divalent nutrients and form poorly soluble complexes. The possibility of using nickel (Ni), an essential divalent metal, for alleviating glyphosate drift damage to wheat was investigated in this study. Effects of Ni applications on various(More)
Heat stress is a growing concern in crop production because of global warming. In many cropping systems heat stress often occurs simultaneously with other environmental stress factors such as mineral nutrient deficiencies. This study aimed to investigate the role of adequate magnesium (Mg) nutrition in mitigating the detrimental effects of heat stress on(More)
Low concentration of zinc (Zn) in the endosperm of cereals is a major factor contributing to Zn deficiency in human populations. We have investigated how combined Zn and nitrogen (N) fertilization affects the speciation and localization of Zn in durum wheat (Triticum durum). Zn-binding proteins were analysed with liquid chromatography ICP-MS and Orbitrap(More)
Nickel (Ni) has a critical role in the urea metabolism of plants. This study investigated the impact of seed Ni content along with external Ni supply on the growth, various nitrogen (N) metabolites and N use efficiency (NUE) of soybean plants. Soybean plants raised from Ni-poor or Ni-rich seeds were grown in nutrient solution with or without external Ni(More)
Magnesium (Mg) has diverse functions in plants and plays a critical role in carbohydrate partitioning between source and sink tissues. There is, however, limited information available about the effects of Mg deficiency on grain starch accumulation, yield formation and seed quality in terms of seed germination and seedling establishment in wheat.
