Changes in growth and in uptake, distribution and translocation of phosphorus in susceptible and resistant alfalfa plants induced byCorynebacterium insidiosum
The weight of alfalfa plants, especially roots of susceptible strain, decreased when inoculated withCorynebacterium insidiosum. At the 6th week after inoculation the32P uptake per plant and its translocation into the above-ground organs were considerably decreased in susceptible plants. On the other hand, the32P uptake was increased and the radiophosphorus was accumulated in above-ground organs in resistant plants.
