The exchange rates of mineral cations in the xylem and phloem between root and shoot of white lupin (Lupinus albus L., cv. Ultra) were measured using nodulated plants grown in a defined liquid culture medium low in Na and lacking nitrogen. Harvests were taken at 39 and 49 days after sowing and plant parts analysed for C, N, and the mineral cations K(+), Mg(++), Ca(++), and Na(+). Respiration losses of carbon by nodulated roots were assessed using Pettenkofer assemblies, and concentrations of C… CONTINUE READING
