Interception of wet deposition of radiocaesium and radiostrontium by Brássica napus

Rosén, Klas; Bengtsson, Stefan


In this study we examined the effects of 134Cs and 85Sr in the form of wet deposition on spring oilseed rape (Brássica napus L. ‘Joplin’). Simulated rainfall containing the radioisotopes 134Cs and 85Sr was applied to the crop on six different occasions during the season. The interception fraction was found to be positively correlated to the leaf area index, with an r-value of 0.75 for 134Cs and 0.77 for 85Sr and to crop biomass, with an r-value of 0.80 for 134Cs and 0.77 for 85Sr
