Fodder radish was grown in 1 mg kg -1 selenite or selenate-treated soil in a rhizobox experiment. A rapid depletion of selenate was observed in mixed root-soil compartment, which correlated well with high phytoavailability of this Se form. In a root and root hair-free rhizosphere soil (0-3.5 mm), however, the Se was not mobilized. Neither 1 mg kg -1 selenite nor 1 mg kg -1 selenate have not influenced significantly the number of spore forming microbes or microscopic fungi in the soil, as compared to control.
