Abstract
Correlation co-efficients (r values) were determined for the major nutrients in fresh tissue extracts and in acid digests of cauliflower, var. Majestic. In 1953, K, Ca and P in extracts of cauliflower leaves made with either malonate or succinate are significantly correlated with total analysis. Nitrate N in the malonate extract has a significant r value with total nitrogen. The Mg in either extract is not correlated with the total content.
