The translocation of cesium from leaves into the edible parts after foliar deposition at different stages of growth has been determined for cereals, potatoes, green beans and carrots in field experiments. For all the plant species investigated a significant seasonality of the cesium translocation was observed. The highest translocation factors were determined after foliar contamination 50 to 60 days before harvest for cereals, and 70 to 90 days and 15 days before harvest for potatoes and green… CONTINUE READING
