Abstract: Calcium (Ca) is often supplied to crop species to prevent the occurrence of Ca-related disorders. Mechanisms of Ca absorption and transport are not fully understood and the effectiveness of root and/or foliar Ca fertilization may be variable. To characterize the rate of Ca absorption and transport, trials were developed with chili pepper and sweet cherry plants, using 45 CaCl 2 as a tracer. The Ca treatments supplied were: (1) No 45 Ca (control); (2) 45 Ca soil application; (3) 45 Ca supply to basal leaves, an…
