Pot experiments in 1954 and 1955 at the National Institute of Agricultural Sciences, Japan, showed that varietal susceptibility of rice plants to 'akagare' disease associated with potassium deficiency was positively correlated with the ratios of soluble nitrogen to starch or to protein nitrogen X starch. The respiratory rate of leaves showed high positive correlation with starch content.
