vanadium in plant species

  • Bushveld Vanadium – Bushveld Minerals

    Brits Vanadium Project is an extension, along strike, of the Vametco mine. Recent drilling results have indicated a lower seam weighted average grades of 0.66% V 2 O 5 in-situ and 1.66% V 2 O 5 in magnetite. Brits has the potential to provide additional ore feed for the Vametco plant and, if required, concentrate feed for the Vanchem plant.

  • Vanadium stimulates pepper plant growth and flowering ...

    Vanadium (V) can be absorbed by plants and regulate their growth and development, although contrasting effects have been reported among species and handling conditions. The objective of this work was to evaluate the beneficial effect of V on pepper plants (Capsicum annuum L.). The plants were grown in a hydroponic system with the application of four V concentrations (0, 5, 10, and 15 μM ...

  • The Role of Various Elements in Plant Growth

    Vanadium (V) — Although it is relatively obscure, vanadium has been shown to have a role in plant nutrition. Foliar application to cotton has increased lint cotton yields, both dry land and irrigated, by 50 pounds per acre without increasing the crop's water requirements.

    Abstract. In a series of experiments, it is demonstrated that the trace element vanadium (4·10-7 g-at/l as NH 4 VO 3) has a considerable positive influence on the synthesis of δ-aminolevulinic acid (δ-ALA) in the autotrophically growing green algaChlorella pyrenoidosa, the effect being visible by an enhanced output of the amino acid into the culture medium in presence of levulinic acid (LA).

  • Vanadium uptake and translocation in dominant plant ...

    Vanadium uptake and translocation in the dominant species. A wide variation in V concentration in the plant tissues indicates that uptake and translocation is the result of complex interaction of chemical, biological and physical factors (Ehlken and Kirchner, 2002).
