Influence of Iron and Manganese on the Growth and Contents of Fe, Mn and P in Rice

S. M. Alam and R. Ansari    

Abstract: Rice plants growing on a calcareous soil, supplied with various levels of labeled Fe59 and Mn54 subjected to two moisture regimes and under flooded(anaerobic) condition, the number of tillers, plant height, dry matter yield and contents of Fe, Mn and P in rice plants increased considerably indicating that soil submergence enhanced the availability of Fe, Mn and P in the growth medium. Mn content in the plant under flooded condition was always higher than that of Fe under similar condition. Unflooded (aerobic) condition showed less growth and nutrient contents in rice plants than the flooded (anaerobic) condition.
