We present real time Vanadate (V$$^{5+}$$) uptake imaging in a cowpea plant by Positron Emitting Tracer Imaging System (PETIS). Vanadium-48 was produced by bombarding a Sc foil target with 50 MeV $$alpha$$-particles at Takasaki Ion accelerators for Advanced Radiation Application (TIARA) AVF cyclotron. Then $$^{48}$$V was added to the culture solution to investigate the V distribution in a cowpea plant. The real time uptake of the $$^{48}$$V was monitored by PETIS. We measured the distribution of $$^{48}$$V in a whole plant after 3, 6 and 20 hours of V treatment by Bio-imaging Analyzer System (BAS). After the 20 hour treatment, vanadate was detected at the up-ground part of the plant. To know the effect of V uptake on plant activity, $$^{18}$$F-labeled water uptake was analyzed by PETIS. When a cowpea plant was treated with V for 20 hours before $$^{18}$$F-labeled water uptake experiment, the total amount of $$^{18}$$F-labeled water absorption was drastically desreased. Results suggest the inhibition of water uptake was mainly caused by the vanadate already moved to the up-ground part of the plant.
