The experiment was conducted to investigate the effect of different pre-sowing seed treatments on growth and drought tolerance of rice plants during 2015-2016 at Faculty of Agriculture, University of Ruhuna, Sri Lanka. Rice variety At 362 was used for these experiments. Under experiment one, various organic and inorganic treatments such as coconut water, fermented milk water, fermented rice water, Ascorbic acid, KCl, KNO3, ZnSO4 , CaCl2 were applied to investigate growth and development of rice… CONTINUE READING
