Effects of acetic, propionic, and butyric acids on rice seedling growth and nutrition

Abstract

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… (More)
