Major constraints for plant growth on acid mineral soils are toxic concentrations of mineral elements like Al, of H+, and/or low mineral nutrient availability either as a result of solubility (e.g. P and Mo), low reserves, and impaired uptake (e.g. Mg2+) at high H+ concentrations. Inhibition of root growth particularly by Al leads to more shallow root systems, which may affect the capacity for mineral nutrient acquisition and increase the risk of drought stress. Of the two principal strategies… CONTINUE READING
