Boron-uptake mechanisms and boron nutrition of rice.


Description

There are very few studies on B deficiency in rice (Oryza sativa L.). Reported critical values of B deficiency in rice are contradictory and mechanisms of B uptake by plant are not understood. Objectives of this study were to determine B effects on rice grown in hydroponics and soil; to determine critical values of B deficiency in rice tissues, hydroponic solution and soil; and to explore B- uptake mechanisms in both monocots (rice) and dicots (soybean (Glycine max L.)).
