VTL 5: a high yielding salinity tolerant rice variety for the coastal saline ecosystems of Kerala



VTL 5: a high yielding salinity tolerant rice variety for the coastal saline ecosystems of Kerala



Journal of Tropical Agriculture 43(1/2): 25-28



VTL 5, a promising 'Mahsuri' mutant, was released in September 1996 for cultivation in the coastal saline ecosystems of Kerala. This variety has multiple tolerances to abiotic stresses such as salinity, acidity and submergence. It is a tall, medium duration, high yielding and white kernelled rice variety with good cooking quality. Average yield without chemical inputs is ~3500 kg ha-1.
