Studies on morphological traits contributing to flood tolerance in lowland rice



Studies on morphological traits contributing to flood tolerance in lowland rice



Crop Research (Hisar) 14(2): 263-267



Twenty lowland rice varieties were studied for phenotypic variation in morphological traits viz., plant height, number of internodes, leaf length and leaf rolling index. Considerable genetic variation for all the traits was observed among these lowland varieties. Jalmagna recorded the highest values, whereas the lowest values were noted with Banshwa. Thus, from the present study, it may be concluded that the aforsaid morphological traits, contributing flood tolerance, could easily serve as important criteria for screening the germplasms to identify suitable lowland rice cultivars.
