Effect of root hair length on aluminium tolerance in white clover



Effect of root hair length on aluminium tolerance in white clover



Journal of Plant Nutrition 18(5): 955-958



The aluminium (Al) tolerance of white clover (Trifolium repens L.) lines that had either long or short root hair lengths were evaluated in low ionic strength (2.7 times 10-3 M) solution culture. Absolute yield of the long root hair length plants was greater than the short root hair length plants at all Al rates by, on average, 34%. However, increasing root hair length had no significant (P lt 0.05) effect on relative Al tolerance.
