3163. Kouril, R.. 1988. Green manures as dynamic accumulators.. J. of Sustainable Agriculture (CA) 1:23-24.
The author describes various plants that appear to preferentially accumulate certain nutrient elements. By choosing these plants as green manures, fertility levels can potentially be increased. Typically, these plants thrive in areas with high amounts of the nutrient, but they can sometime make them more available. Buckwheat and mustards are considered phosphate accumulators, while oak leaves are calcium accumulators. A comprehensive listing of plants and their nutrient content is provided in the author's book "Designing and Maintaining Your Edible Landscape Naturally."
