Investigating the Role of Dimethyl-Arsenic in Inducing Straighthead Disease in Rice
Arsenic contamination of food is a global concern, both from human health and agronomic perspectives. Compared to other cereals, rice can accumulate arsenic to 10-fold higher levels. Rice is inherently efficient at accumulating arsenic as a result of it being grown under anaerobic conditions which promotes mobilisation and uptake of inorganic arsenic.
