A field experiment was conducted in kharif season of 2015 to investigate the influence of silicon solublizer on different rice genotypes namely PA-6129, PA-6201, PA-6444, PHB-71, US-312, and BPT-5204. Soil application of silicon solubilizers was given at the time of maximum tillering, panicle initiation and 50% flowering stage. The experiment was arranged as split plot design with three treatments and three replications. Various physiological and biochemical parameters mainly Total protein content (mg g-1 fresh weight), Amylose content (%), iron and Zinc content (ppm) in grains, were evaluated at maturity stage. All rice genotypes showed the positive influence with silicon solublizers application which increase total protein (mg g-1 fresh weight), iron (ppm), zinc (ppm) content in grains, but negative influence in amylose content. The purpose of this study was to investigate whether the silicon solublizers influences the physiology, biochemistry of grains and its quality which ultimately increase yields in different rice genotypes. By using the silicon solublizers one would expect to raise the nutrition demand, yield quality many fold of rice and fulfilling the demand of overgrowing population in the upcoming years under severe climate change conditions.

Keywords: Silicon, Protein, Grain Quality etc.
