We present Na, Mg, Al, K and Ca profiles, determined by neutron activationanalysis (NAA) in a soybean plant during its life cycle in water culture.The concentrations of Mg and Ca in leaves were higher than the other tissuesduring the developmental stage of a plant. The concentration of K was relativelyuniform within a plant. When a plant was treated with V, element uptake amount,especially Mg, K and Ca, was decreased throughout the life cycle. Vanadiumtreatment also induced low concentration of Mg and K in roots.
