Research output: Contribution to journalArticleProfessional

Abstract

Dry, brown areas (blossom end rot) on tomatoes and peppers; tipburn on lettuce and Chinese cabbage; dry edges on the young leaves and flower leaves of poinsettias; malformed spathe leaves on anthurium. Many such physiogene deviations are related to calcium. They aren’t always caused by a deficiency but can be due to poor calcium distribution in the plant. Many sorts of circumstances influence the dispersal of calcium.
