Selenium Accumulation And Growth Of Perennial Ryegrass (lolium Perenne L.) As Affected By Pig Manure Composting
At trace concentrations, selenium (Se) has been shown to exert positive effects on plant growth, but Se essentiality to higher plants remains in doubt. Plants can absorb Se from the soil in inorganic or organic forms, but the cycling and bioavailability of organic Se in the manure-soil-plant system remain to be fully understood. This study investigated the effects... Continue here

Free Radical Scavenging And Metal Ion Chelating Properties Of Differently Pigmented Rice Varieties
Pigmented rice (Oryza sativa L.) becomes interestingly important in agroindustry because it contains high phytochemical compounds that can be antioxidants and metal ion chelating.
