William Plaxton, Hans Lambers's Phosphorus Metabolism in Plants PDF

The improvement of phosphorus (P)-efficient crop kinds is urgently had to decrease agriculture’s present over-reliance on pricey, environmentally damaging, non-renewable and inefficient P-containing fertilizers. The sustainable administration of P in agriculture necessitates an exploitation of P-adaptive characteristics that may increase the P-acquisition and P-use potency of crop vegetation.

23b). 24 Diagrams showing the lateral meristems (vascular cambium and phellogen) and the secondary tissues which are formed by their cell divisional activity. (a) Production of secondary xylem and phloem, and periderm in a dicotyledon stem. (b) Production of secondary vascular tissues and periderm in a root. Note the position of secondary vascular tissues and periderm in relation to primary tissue regions. Because, in the root, the phellogen develops to the inside of the endodermis, the epidermis, cortex, and endodermis eventually disintegrate and slough off.
