The influence of chemical forms of iodine (I− and I2) on the uptake by wheat plant (Triticum aestivum) as a function of growth, in terms of days since germination, has been studied. The normalized amount on fresh weight basis of I− and I2 absorbed by root, shoot and plant as a whole was determined by independent experiments. Both chemical forms of iodine were tagged with131I for radiometric assay. The transport index, depletion factor and shoot to root ratios were determined. The total amount of iodine absorbed increases as a function of growth in case of both chemical forms; however, uptake and transportation of I− is greater as compared to I2.
