Rice varietal improvement in Egypt



Rice varietal improvement in Egypt



Rice farming systems New directions Proceedings of an international symposium, 31 January 3 February 1987, Rice Research and Training Center, Sakha, Egypt: 91-102



Techniques used and progress made in rice breeding in Egypt are briefly described. Two cultivars, Giza 175 (short grained) and Giza 181 (long grained), released in 1987 are recommended. Giza 181 gave an average yield of 9.9 t/ha in national yield trials in 1983-86 and has high cooking and storage qualities due to a favourable amylose content, medium gelatinization temperature and relatively soft gel consistency. Giza 181 is also early to mature and non-lodging.
