Boron Complexing Plant Materials And Uses Thereof Cross-reference To Related Applications

Abstract

This invention relates to methods for reducing the boron concentration of a water source, solid supports for effecting the same, methods for increasing boron tolerance in a plant and seeds and transgenic plants produced in accordance with the same. The methods of this invention include providing conditions whereby the plant exhibits increased shoot concentrations of malic acid, fructose, glucose, citric acid or a combination thereof, or providing conditions whereby a shoot in said plant contains intracellular complexes of malic acid, fructose, glucose, citric acid or a combination thereof with boron, in turn reducing toxicity of boron to the plant, thereby being a method of increasing boron tolerance in the plant. Methods of reducing soil boron content are also described.
