In maturing wheat ears the xylem predominantly feeds the glumes, while the phloem is directed to the developing grains. A transfer of amino acids and rubidium from the xylem lo the phloem was observed in the peduncle. Apolar and basic amino acids were most rapidly removed from the xylem, while the transfer of aspartate and glutamate was far less effective
