Rice can accumulate arsenic (As) to relatively high concentrations due to the general flooding practices in rice cultivation, and organic matter in the soil strongly affected As bioavailability to rice plants. The influence of organic matter input on the As transformation in paddy soil and As uptake into rice plants is an area that is rarely investigated. Biogas slurry (BGS), a commonly used organic fertilizer, was applied to an As contaminated paddy soil, in order to investigate the influence… CONTINUE READING
