Iron deficiency induces cluster (proteoid) root formation in Casuarina glauca


The effect of iron deficiency, phosphorus, NaHCO3, chelator supply and nitrogen source on the formation of cluster (proteoid) roots was investigated in Casuarina glauca growing in water culture. The addition of iron-binding chelators (e.g. EDDHA, DTPA, EDTA) or increase in nutrient solution pH with NaHCO3 resulted in the formation of cluster roots when… (More)
