Ca, Cu, and Pb, their considerably higher average uptake assessed during Time 2 with respect to Time 1 was not supported by a proportional increase of their total and potentially bioavailable input to the soil-crop system through irrigation water and

irrigation water has high salinity, the salt may precipitate on the leaves as the water evaporates. This in turn can result in foliar uptake and phytotoxicity ( Bailey et al., 1999 ). The irrigation water may also cause salt to accumulate in the substrate

, the uptake of Ca 2+ in snapdragons was unaffected by increasing Na + up to 14 dS·m −1 (98.7 m m ). Additionally, we found that Ca 2+ concentrations were higher in plant tissues irrigated with SWD when compared with those irrigated with CCRW water

Vegetable seedlings often suffer transient water stress after transplanting. This so-called transplant shock is caused by the imbalance between water uptake and transpiration. In newly transplanted seedlings, water uptake is reduced because of root

Nutrient availability for plant uptake is affected by root zone pH, especially in the case of metal micronutrients such as Fe 2+ and Mn 2+ , which decrease in solubility as pH increases ( Lindsay, 1979 ; Peterson, 1981 ). Several factors interact
