Rice varietal improvement



Rice varietal improvement



International Rice Commission Newsletter 34(2): 111-125



Recent developments in rice breeding are surveyed under the main headings rice breeding objectives (those discussed include high yield, early maturity, grain quality and resistance to pests, diseases and stress), rice improvement for different cultural types (with information on breeding for irrigated, rainfed lowland, deep-water, upland and tidal wetland environments), rice breeding strategies (with mention of heterosis breeding, tissue culture, mutation breeding and rapid generation advance) and international collaboration. Work carried out at or in collaboration with IRRI is emphasized.
