    Microstructural changes in rice (Oryza sativa L.) leaves under varying low pH levels: a swept-source optical coherence tomography approach

    Soil acidification has shown detrimental effects on rice plants that lead to decreased rice production. In the present study, we aim to study the microstructural changes in rice leaves under acidic stress through swept-source optical coherence tomography (SS-OCT). To achieve this, rice seeds were germinated, subsequently these germinated seedlings were further grown under varying pH conditions for 14 d. Growth in root and shoot of plants and chlorophyll content of leaf samples were studied at varying pH levels. Similarly, acidic stress treated rice leaves were also subjected to SS-OCT image analysis revealing several features present in the layers of leaves ...
