Ferric reduction may play an important role in iron acquisition and utilization for the cells of plant leaves. This study revealed that ferric oxalate could serve as a better substrate for the ferric reduction by either leaf discs or the membrane-bound ferric reductase compared with the other commonly-used ferric chelates such as Fe~(III) EDTA and ferric citrate. Iron deficiency was not able to increase the ferric reduction in cucumber leaves, which usually occurs in the roots. Iron deficiency itself had no effect on oxalate content in the leaves, but bicarbonate, abundant in calcareous soil, significantly increased the leaf oxalate content.
