  • Growth, metal uptake, and uptake distribution of spinach and parsley plants irrigated with copper solutions
  • Published at:Not Found
  • The effects of irrigation of spinach and parsley plants with copper solutions on plant growth and on metal uptake by plant were studied.

    Copper was found to inhibit the growth of spinach and parsley plants. The growth of spinach plants was more inhibited by treatment with copper than parsley plants.

    Both copper concentration and the total content of copper in treated plants increased with the increase of concentration of copper in solutions used for treatment. The copper content was highest in the leaves in comparison with the other parts of treated plants.

    Only very small portions of the added copper were allowed to be translocated from soil into plant.
