134Cs uptake by four plant species and Cs-K relations in the soil-plant system as affected by Ca(OH)2 application to an acid soil.

Three rates of Ca(OH)(2) were applied to an acid soil and the (134)Cs uptake by radish, cucumber, soybean and sunflower plants was studied. The (134)Cs concentration in all plant species was reduced from 1.6-fold in the sunflower seeds to 6-fold in the soybean vegetative parts at the higher Ca(OH)(2) rate. Potassium (K) concentration in plants was also… CONTINUE READING
