Soils which are flooded for lowland rice culture shift from aerobic to anaerobic organic matter transformations. Anaerobic carbon transformations, involving chiefly rice crop residues, are characterized by the formation of various organic acids. These may accumulate after prolonged incubations in amounts sufficient to be toxic to developing rice seedlings. In these experiments the effects of acetic, propionic, and butyric acids were studied at 1, 5, and 10 mN on the growth and nutrition of 14… CONTINUE READING
