Inhaltliche Voraussetzungen (erwartete Kenntnisse)

Basics in chemistry and plant physiology


After completing this course, the students are able to
• discuss the mechanisms of selective nutrient uptake by plant roots.
• explain nutrient translocation via xylem and phloem.
• describe the role of nutrients in yield formation.
• discuss the transport of photosynthates from source to sink organs and the regulation of source-sink relationships, including the role of phytohormones in these processes.
• explain the appearance and formation of nutrient deficiency and toxicity symptoms in important crop plants.
