Effects of Mn on accumulation of nutrients in wheat plants infected with the take-all fungus locations

To assess effects of manganese fertilisation and infection with Ggt isolates of different virulance on accumulation of nutrients by wheat genotypes.

Key messages
  • Manganese fertilisaiton increased the accummulaiotn of manganes ebut reduced the accumulation of zinc and copper.
  • Take-all infection redcued root growth only slightly, indicating that reduced nutrient accumulaiotn was due to changes in root physiology.
  • Manganese efficient genotypes accumulated othe rnutrients at a slower rate than manganese inefficient genotypes.
