  author={Xaviar Arulandoo and Kam Suan Pheng},
Field trials were conducted to study the influence of rice straw, lime and fertilizers on rice grown on acid sulphate soils. Rice frequently shows iron toxicity symptoms in unamended fields, particularly during the dry season. Lime application at the rate of 2.5 tonslha increased rice yields substantially through a general improvement in crop growth and plant nutrient status. There was a.clear residual effect of lime in the subsequent rice crop. Incorporation of crop residue increased dry… CONTINUE READING
