Uptake of cadmium and zinc by ryegrass at high solution culture levels.
AbstractNew top growth of ryegrass exposed to various solution culture levels of cadmium and zinc absorbed the elements without detectable interaction between the two. When after repeated clippings the contents had risen to 100 mg cadmium/kg DM or 700-1000 mg zinc/kg DM the new growth was injured. Interaction of zinc in cadmium toleration was suggested by the growth response but could not be established with certainty. (Abstract retrieved from CAB Abstracts by CABI’s permission)
