Effect of some citrus rootstocks on leaf mineral contents of young and adult lemon trees

Effect of some citrus rootstocks on leaf mineral contents of young and adult lemon trees

Proceedings of the International Society of Citriculture: Volume 1 Taxonomy, breeding and varieties, rootstocks and propagation, plant physiology and ecology: 7th International Citrus Congress, Acireale, Italy, 8-13 March, 1992: 275-279

The experiment was carried out in 1988-90 under greenhouse and field conditions. The cultivars Verna and Fino were propagated on the rootstocks Citrus macrophylla and sour orange. Standard nutrient programmes were applied to both experiments. Mineral content in the leaves from trees in the greenhouse showed that rootstocks had no effect on N content. C. macrophylla increased P, Ca and Mg, while sour orange increased K and Zn. There were scion differences in mineral uptake.
