Potassium and calcium are essential for tree metabolism and various physiological processes related to growth. In recent years, special interest was therefore accorded to the effect of both cations on cambial activity and xylem development. Various studies revealed a distinct correlation between potassium as well as calcium nutrition and wood formation. When poplar trees were grown under low K(+) or Ca²(+) regimes, the cambial activity as well as the seasonal rate of wood increment and the… CONTINUE READING
