- ... Manganese (Mn) deficiency is prevalent in rice-growing regions resulting in poor paddy yield and human health. In this study, role of Mn, applied through various methods, in improving the productivity and grain biofortification of fine grain aromatic rice was evaluated. Manganese was delivered as soil application (SA) (0.5 kg ha⁻¹), foliar spray (FA) (0.02 M Mn), seed priming (SP) (0.1 M Mn) and s ...
