TRANSLOCATION OF LABELLED ASSIMILATE IN POTASSIUM-DEFICIENT PLANTS

Authors


Summary

The pattern of distribution of labelled assimilate, and the amounts exported from a source leaf, have been investigated in eleven species of plants growing in a potassium-deficient medium. Comparison with the same parameters for plants growing with full nutrient complement showed no detectable differences in either the pattern or quantity of photosynthate that was translocated.
