The appearance of above symptoms could be ascribed to prolonged feeding of Selenium enriched forages and straw grown on seleniferous soil and related to impaired digestion associated with interference in absorption.
However over the period of time recommendations by Dhillon and Dhillon (2009) were adopted by farmers like use of gypsum to soils which reduces absorption of Selenium in plants, use of organic manure also reducing Selenium toxicity, changing the cropping sequence with recommendation of crops with less uptake of Selenium and increasing depth of water (deep boring) in affected areas as well as avoiding the feeding of crops grown on seleniferous soils markedly reduced the uptake of Selenium by crops raised on seleniferous soils, It was considered that adoption of these recommendations might have led to decreased incidence of clinical cases and severity of signs thus reducing the effect of chronic selenosis on animal system.
