Title of research Effect of Water Management and Phosphorus rates on the Growth of Rice in a High-Arsenic Soil-Water System

Arsenic depressed rice yields, indicating phytotoxicity. Adding phosphorus to the soil reduced arsenic toxicity. Saturated soil conditions reduced arsenic toxicity compared to flooded soil conditions for all phosphorus levels.

Presentation at National and International Conferences:
