The agronomic and morphological characteristics of Agrobacterium-transformed rice plants carrying the synthetic cry1Ab or cry1Ac gene were investigated. Tremendous variations in plant height, seed fertility, grain size and other traits were seen in 80 T1 lines, derived from 80 T0 plants of 9 rice varieties. On average, about 33% T1 lines had either morphological or agronomic variant plants.
