The balance of the principal ionic constituents in plants is reviewed in relation to the requirements for each of the elements, and for total accumulation as reflected in the total cation content (C), the inorganic anion conent (A) and the organic anion content (C-A). The balance in young wheat plants is investigated by means of adding various combinations of the principal ions to the soil. A summary of tests on adequacy of supply with the principal nutrient ions and of accumulation of cations, inorganic anions and organic anions, based on critical values. for contents in the plant material, is presented for diagnosing the nutrient status in relation to capacity for maximum growth.
