Aluminum in the soil solution is a severe growth limiting factor in certain acid soils (Foy, 1964; Long and Foy, 1970). This problem is particularly serious in acid subsoils (Adams and Lund, 1966; Foy, 1964) which are difficult to lime. Recent research has centered on selecting those plant cultivars which demonstrate a degree of tolerance to soil aluminum.
