The accumulation, chemical composition, and distribution of storage nitrogen in young peach trees (Golden queen on Elberta rootstock), and the importance of this stored nitrogen for new growth, were investigated in this thesis. In addition, the metabolic stability of constituents of the storage nitrogen of dormant peach trees was studied.
