Agronomic biofortification of upland rice with selenium and nitrogen and its relation to grain quality
The objective of the present study was to evaluate agronomic biofortification with nitrogen (N) and selenium (Se) with the aim of increasing the daily Se intake by the population and the nutritional quality of the grain. ...
Selenium protects rice plants from water deficit stress
Selenium (Se) is essential to humans and animals due to its antioxidant properties. Although it is not considered an essential nutrient for higher plants. Many studies show that Se in low concentrations (up to 0.5 mg kg−1) ...
