Rice varietal improvement for protein content at the International Rice Research Institute



Rice varietal improvement for protein content at the International Rice Research Institute



Cereal grain protein improvement: 199-202



Of 10 500 cultivars screened since 1966 none had an improved lysine content. However, 6 varieties were selected from a total of 26 356 accessions on the basis of their high protein contents, and crossed with IR8. The resulting lines had only two-thirds of the yield potential of IR8, and no high-protein rice variety has yet been released.
