Nutrient Uptake by Rice Plant and Its Effect on Yield1

  1. Megh Nath Basak

Dry matter synthesis and nitrogen and phosphate uptake by rice plant in field culture were highly correlated with grain yield. During intermediate stages of plant development, however, these functions showed steady progress in some centers and different degrees of interruption in some others. The interruptions caused losses in grain yield and were attributable to physiological consequences of lodging.
