Although soluble aluminium (Al) has long been recognised as an important limitation to plant growth on acid soils, the biochemical basis of Al toxicity has not been elucidated. Aluminium accumulation in the cell wall may be important, especially the reaction of Al with calcium (Ca) pectate. A study was conducted to investigate the effects of six ligands… CONTINUE READING
