Abstract:

Elevated arsenic content in food crops pose a serious human health risk. Rice is the main food crop is possibly cultivated on contaminated sites. A study was conducted to study effects of different oxyanions on arsenic uptake by rice plants. Shoot arsenic concentrations under phosphate treatments were comparatively lower than under the corresponding concentration of nitrate and sulphate treatments in arsenic contaminated condition. Root arsenic concentration decreased with increase in concentration of nitrate and phosphate in the nutrient medium. Increased level of nitrate though diluted arsenic concentration in root and shoot by promoting tissue growth it appeared to have little effect on uptake and translocation.
