Nutrient uptake, transport and translocation in cereals: influences of environmental and farming conditions

Malik, Ali Hafeez


The main emphasis of the introductory paper is to highlight the importance of nutrients, their uptake, transport, translocation and use efficiency in cereal crop production. Among the cereals, mainly wheat and barley are discussed in details. Among the nutrients, nitrogen, as one of the most important nutrients, is most deeply described in this paper. Quantitative and qualitative aspects of proteins in wheat and barley are also described in relation to nutrient availability. Nitrogen mineralization and leaching is discussed for cereal cultivation
