hypothesized that increasing yields has resulted in decreased concentrations of mineral elements in produce because of a “dilution effect” caused by plant growth rates exceeding the ability of plants to acquire these elements ( Jarrell and Beverly, 1981 ) that

, which resulted in the highest quality scores, had some of the lowest foliar K concentrations. This was likely due to a dilution effect. On the other hand, treatments 20 and 25, which had statistically equivalent quality scores to treatment 22, had some

have a dilution effect on THC, THCA, and CBGA. Although the dilution effect was apparent with increasing fertilizer rate, it did not have a substantial impact on the total per-plant yield of most cannabinoids. This was evidenced by a lack of correlation

be further attributed to a dilution effect because Ca 2+ uptake lags behind the rapid increase in fruit mass ( Saure, 2005 ). Similarly, a transient decrease in fruit [Ca 2+ ] during the rapid cell expansion phase has been noted in tomato, where [Ca

are believed to accentuate K deficiencies in palms, presumably because of a dilution effect ( Broschat, 2005a ). On highly leached, low cation exchange capacity (CEC) sandy soils, such as those commonly found within the Atlantic coastal plain of the

similar results at the 10-true-leaf stage (49 DAT) compared with the six-true-leaf stage (35 DAT), suggested that this response could be attributable in part to a “dilution effect” or use of the fatty acids synthesized to repair cell damage as a result of

cultivar differences in root GSL concentrations could have been the result of a dilution effect, because JR roots have lower GSL concentrations than SQ roots but larger root yields than SQ. We attempted to compensate for dilution effects by using roots of

absence of Zn can lead to Zn deficiency through a dilution effect brought about by an increase in growth resulting from the N application ( Loneragan and Webb, 1993 ). Although acidifying N fertilizers such as AS can lead to an increase in the availability

late stage is related to the nutrient dilution effect as the plant allocates a higher amount of assimilates to the heart growth than those partitioned to the rosette formation. The dilution effect could also in part explain the consistently lower N
