Influence of washing on elemental analysis of leaves of fieldgrown crop plants

  title={Influence of washing on elemental analysis of leaves of fieldgrown crop plants},
  author={William L. Hargrove and Kaori Ohki and David O. Wilson},
  journal={Plant and Soil},
Information is limited on soil contamination of leaves from field-grown row crops, especially with respect to aluminum (Al) analyses. The objective of this study was to determine the influence of washing leaf samples with either deionized water or detergent solution on elemental analyses for several agronomic crop plants. The crop plants sampled were corn (Zea mays L.), soybean (Glycine max L. Merr.), grain sorghum (Sorghum bicolor L. Moench), and wheat (Triticum aestivum L.). The crops were… CONTINUE READING
