Differences in responses to flooding by germinating seeds of two contrasting rice cultivars and two species of economically important grass weeds

Lucy P. Estioko, Berta Miro, Aurora M. Baltazar, Florinia E. Merca, Abdelbagi M. Ismail and David E. Johnson.

in AoB PLANTS

P ublished online November 2014 .

Journal Article. Subjects: Agriculture and Farming; Plant Sciences and Forestry; Plant Physiology. 8276 words.

Crop productivity is largely affected by abiotic factors such as flooding and by biotic factors such as weeds. Although flooding after direct seeding of rice helps suppress weeds, it also...
