Iron deficiency in peanuts (Arachis hypogeae L.) caused an increase in release of caffeic acid, a higher rate of Fe(III) reduction, and increased rates of both Fe(III) chelate splitting and iron uptake.Experiments on Fe(III) reduction by phenolics (in vitro experiments) and by roots of Fe-deficient peanuts exclude the direct involvement of released… CONTINUE READING
