Breeding of a high yielding rice variety Deepak for problem soils

Fiji Agricultural Journal 49(1): 1-7

Breeding of a high yielding rice variety Deepak for problem soils

Deepak was developed from a cross between Lalka Motka, an adapted local variety, and IR661, an IRRI semidwarf variety. It is insensitive to photoperiod and tolerant of acid sulfate, peat and saline soils. It is 90 cm tall and matures in 120-130 days.

It is concluded that increased yield could result from selection for culm and panicle length, panicle weight and number of panicles, that heritability estimates for culm length and 1000-grain weight decrease with increased seeding density, that th...

We previously reported the development of 334 introgression lines...
