Differences in Steady-State Net Ammonium and Nitrate Influx by Cold- and Warm-Adapted Barley Varieties 1

Publication Date
  • Articles


A flowing nutrient culture system permitted relatively rapid determination of the steady-state net nitrogen influx by an intact barley (Hardeum vulgare L. cv Kombar and Olli) plant. Ion-selective electrodes monitored the depletion of ammonium and nitrate from a nutrient solution after a single pass through a root cuvette. Influx at concentrations as low as 4 micromolar was measured. Standard errors for a sample size of three plants were typically less than 10% of the mean.
