Technical Abstract: This chapter presents the symptoms of deficiency and toxicity of the major and minor mineral nutrients in rice, as well as a current synopsis of nutrient transporters and their regulation. The availability of sequences from the recently completed rice genome has furthered the knowledge of how plants, and rice in particular, acquire, distribute, and sequester nutritional elements. Insights have been made regarding the protective mechanisms rice has in place to deal with nutrient deficiencies and excesses. This chapter provides information from traditional plant nutrition and includes recent discoveries on nutrient uptake and transport.
