Effect of rootstocks on the leaf mineral content of citrus



Effect of rootstocks on the leaf mineral content of citrus



Scientia Horticulturae 23(2): 163-168



Leaves from 'Valencia', 'Hamlin' and 'Washington Navel' oranges [Citrus sinensis] grown on 'Rangpur' lime [C. limonia], 'Cleopatra' mandarin [C. reshni], 'Sour Orange' [C. aurantium], 'Troyer' citrange [Poncirus trifoliata .times. C. sinensis] and 'Rough Lemon' [C. jambhiri] rootstocks were analyzed for N, P, K, Ca, Na, Cl, Fe, Mn, Cu and Zn. Significant differences among rootstocks were obtained for K, Ca, Ca/K, Na and Cl, but not for N, P, Fe, Mn, Zn and Cu. Scion leaves on 'Cleopatra' mandarin tended to be low in K and high in Ca/K and those on 'Rangpur' lime were high in K and low in Ca and Ca/K. 'Troyer' citrange induced higher uptake of Na Cl than all other rootstocks. 'Washington Navel' leaves contained more Fe, Zn, Cu and Mn, and less Na, than 'Hamlin' or 'Valencia' leaves. 'Valencia' leaves contained more Ca and less K than the other 2 cultivars. The nutritional status of the trees was slightly low in N, K and Mn, optimum in Fe, Zn and Cu, normal-to-high in P and contained non-toxic levels of Na and Cl. The statistical interaction of root stock and scion was found nonsignificant.
