    Physiological, Biochemical and Microstructural Changes in Rice (Oryza sativa L.) under Varying pH Levels

    Soil acidification exerts detrimental effects on rice plant leading to severe reduction in its yield. In the present study, we investigated the physiological, biochemical and microstructural changes in the leaves of rice cultivars, namely, Jhilli Dhan (JD) and Gora Dhan (GD), under varying pH conditions (pH 6.5, 5.5, 4.5 and 3.5). Seedlings were grown at varying pH levels for 14 days under controlled conditions. Root and shoot growth and chlorophyll content were found to be decreased with increasing acidity, whereas electrolyte leakage was increased with increasing acidity. Overall, seedling growth was significantly reduced at pH 3 ...
