Contrast between wheat and barley grass in response to manganese deficiency locations
Aims

To investigate the comparative tolerance of wheat and 2 species of barley grass to manganese deficiency in solution culture.

Key messages
  • Comparative tolerance of wheat and 2 species of barley grass to manganese deficiency was examined in solution culture.
  • All 3 species achieve comparable biomass on full nutrients but wheat seedlings were greatly disadvantaged on low manganese.
  • Both species barley grass proved far more tolerant of low manganese and maintained positive carbon balance and all treatments including nil addition of manganese.
  • This contrast explains the comparative advantage barley grass wheat on low manganese soils.
