Abstract
The concept of soil-plant nutrient relationships envisages a continuous removal of nutrient ions from the soil and their accumulation in various parts of the plant, so as to enhance growth and yields. Fried and Broeshart (14) refer to this relationship as a physicochemical process involving a reversible reaction in which solid nutrients pass into solution, are in turn absorbed by plant roots, translocate within the plant and finally accumulated in various plant organs.
