Abstract

Abstract Radish and barley seedlings were sprayed at intervals of 4–5 days with simulated rain to test the factorial combinations of (i) the presence or absence of 0·1 mmol SO 3 2− dm −3 and (ii) the amounts of H 2SO 4 giving pHs ranging from 5·5 to 2·5. In experiments with radishes, leaf and root growth were consistently reduced when acidity was increased from pH 3·5 to 2·5, the effect on roots being accentuated by an interaction with sulphite. In one experiments using pHs restricted to the range 5·5 to 3·5, some aspects of the early growth of barley were reduced by sulphite but not by increasing acidity.
