Phosphorus acquisition from soil by white lupin (Lupinus albus L.) and soybean (Glycine max L.), species with contrasting root development

Watt, M; Evans, John

Description

White lupin and soybean have contrasting root morphologies: white lupin develops proteoid or cluster roots, roots with discreet clusters of short, determinate branch roots (rootlets) while soybean develops a more fibrous root system with evenly distributed, longer branch roots. Growth and P acquisition by white lupin and soybean were compared in a soil high in bound, total P, with or without additional inorganic P applied in solution. Additional P increased biomass by 25% and doubled total P in...[Show more]
