Abstract A stimulating effect was demonstrated for low levels of both beta and gamma radiation on the growth and productivity of rice plants. A varietal difference was observed in the reaction to an equal dose of the same kind of nuclear radiation. Plants grown from seed exposed to 1,000 r x radiation showed differences in height, but not in productivity, when compared with plants grown from unirradiated seed. (C.H.)
