Nutrients are important for plant growth and development. In this review, previous works were evaluated to investigate the role of nutrients, nutrient deficiency and toxicity in rice. Both macro and micronutrients are necessary for rice plants. Every nutrient has its own character and is involved in different metabolic processes of plant life. Nutrients affect the disease tolerance or resistance of plants to pathogens. Nutrient deficiency and toxicity conditions inhibit normal plant growth and exhibit characteristic symptoms. For optimal growth, development, and production, plants need all the necessary nutrients in balance. Integrated nutrient management in rice has many benefits to increase soil fertility and sustainable crop productivity. The information of this review article would be useful to rice growers and researchers for sustainable and higher rice production
