Effect of periodic distribution of low irradiance upon accumulation of dry matter in different parts of the rice embryo and changes in the dry weight of the endosperm during post germination stages


The work presented deals with the fact that continuous or periodic distribution of low irradiance significantly reduces the dry weight of coleoptile and second leaf with cell elongation in rice seedlings during the initial period of growth. Such reduction in dry matter accumulation under exposure to light is also accompanied by the reduction in the loss of… (More)
