Aluminum toxicity is a major factor in limiting growth in plants in most strongly acid soils. Toxic effects on plant growth have been attributed to several physiological and biochemical pathways, although the precise mechanism is still not fully understood. In general, root elongation is hampered through reduced mitotic activity induced by Al, with subsequent increase in susceptibility to drought. The initial site of uptake is usually the root cap and the mucilaginous secretion covering the… CONTINUE READING
