Abstract

The effects of inorganic arsenic on plants, the mechanisms involved in the uptake and transport of arsenic and how inorganic arsenic enters food chains are well documented. Regulatory limits have been established to control the inorganic arsenic concentrations in certain foods including rice. There is, however, a knowledge gap with respect to dimethylarsenic concentrations. In this study rice was grown hydroponically and exposed to varying DMA concentrations. High levels of DMA were detrimental to rice plants whereby plants showed symptoms consistent with Straighthead disease, a disease that results in dramatic yield losses.
