INDIA: Micronutrient Enrichment Mediated by Plant-Microbe Interactions and Rice Cultivation Practices | SRI Global News: Nov. 2023 - Jan. 2024 **sririce.org -- System of Rice Intensification | Scoop.it

A field experiment was conducted to evaluate the effect of plant growth promoting microorganisms (PGPM) on micronutrient enrichment of rice crops grown under conventional (flooded) and SRI practices. The Anabaena-based biofilm inoculants were superior... SRI was found to be superior in terms of enhancing the concentration of zinc, copper, iron, and manganese (Zn, Cu, Fe and Mn), particularly in grains, and significant in increasing the activity of defense- and pathogenesis- related enzymes and yield parameters...
