Molybdenum deficiency in young lettuce and tomato plants


, : Molybdenum deficiency in young lettuce and tomato plants. Acta Horticulturae (26): 61-68

Raising lettuce and tomato plants successfully in high-moor peat required a Mo supplement. A low substrate pH promoted Mo deficiency, as did high levels of nitrate N.

Boertje, G.A., 1969: Molybdenum deficiency in tomato plants. Symptoms of Mo deficiency in young tomato plants growing in peat are described. The symptoms occur more often with nitrate as the N source than with ammonia; thus ammonium sulfate is preferable to calcium nitrate as a fertilizer. Still more favour...

Water culture experiments are described which provide conclusive evidence that Mo uptake by tomato plants is markedly enhanced by P deficiency.

The effects of different molybdenum and manganese supplies on yield and on the uptake and distr1bution of molybdenum in tomato plants grown in sand culture. Market King tomato plants were grown in sand culture at 2 levels of Mo and 3 levels, of Mn. Yields were reduced by Mo deficiency, and were further reduced by excess Mn at the low Mo level. Molybdenum concentration ranged from below 0.005 p.p.m. to...
