Flavonoids content of tomato plants for the study of the nutritional status

Summary

Alterations occur in the normal contents of the total and individual flavonoids with P, Mn and B deficiencies in tomato plants. Differences in flavonoid levels of several organs of the plant have been detected. P, Mn and B deficiencies display absence of flavonol in tomato roots. Flavanone concentration in tomato fruit increases 8-fold as compared with average concentration in the other organs.
