Physiological mechanisms underlying growth and nitrogen productivity in rice

Kariyawasam Batuwaththagamage, Buddhima Chathuri

Description

Nitrogen (N) is one of the most important determinants of crop growth and yield. Associated with increasing global population pressures and food demand, N has become one of the most essential, costly inputs in modern crop production and a major environmental pollutant throughout the world. Thus, identifying crop genotypes with better nitrogen use efficiency has become a prioritized research theme to minimize crop dependency on N inputs and reduce the environmental footprint of agriculture....[Show more]
