The so-called “alkali disease” syndrome observed widely in California rice, causing chlorosis in seedling plants and often effecting a partial to complete loss of stand, has been identified as zinc deficiency. This problem is extensive in both the Sacramento and San Joaquin valleys. In some areas, entire fields are affected; in others, the problem occurs in irregular patterns, depending particularly upon soil conditions.
