In vivo investigations using 11C-labelled photosynthate revealed that there is a change in the patterns of tracer profiles when cereal leaves are exposed to SO2. The change after exposure to SO2 was interpreted in terms of a decrease in lateral water flow into the sieve tubes brought about by reduced phloem loading along the length of a leaf. Analysis also revealed that the speed of translocation was reduced, as expected by the Münch model of phloem transport.
