Root uptake can be facilitated by mycorrhizae fungi. 2. Translocation After uptake, nutrients are free to move throughout the plant through the xylem tissue and can go to the point of most demand. 3.

Only some nutrients are capable of being remobilized. Mobile Non-mobile Nitrogen Calcium Sulfur Iron Magnesium Zinc Potassium Manganese Phosphorus Boron Symptoms of nutrient deficiency will appear first in older leaves if the deficient nutrient is mobile and in the younger leaves if the deficient nutrient is non-mobile .
