Drought Stress Effects on Water Relations of Rice Grown in Nutrient Film Technique

K. P. Halder and S. W Burrage

Abstract:
Rice plants grown in nutrient film technique (NFT) to evaluate the effect of intermittent water stress on water relations, transpiration rate and leaf temperature. It was observed that the total water uptake by the plant, leaf relative water content (RWC), leaf water potential and rate of transpiration were decreased with increasing water stress. The transpiration rate was also decreased with increasing water stress but the leaf temperature increased. There was a positive correlation between (R2=0.81) leaf temperature and RWC and between leaf temperature and transpiration (R2= 0.68).
