Studies on sodium bypass flow in lateral rootless mutants lrt1 and lrt2, and crown rootless mutant crl1 of rice (Oryza sativa L.).
The results suggest that the path of bypass flow in rice is not at the sites of lateral root emergence, and the hypothesis that bypass flow of Na+ in rice occurs at the site where lateral roots emerge from the main roots is reported.
Allelopathic effects of four eucalyptus species on redgram ( Cajanus cajan L.)
Investigations to identify the allelopathic compounds in the leachates of bark, fresh leaves and leaf litter of Eucalyptus tereticornis, E. camaldulensis , E. polycarpa and E. microtheca showed the presence of coumaric, gallic, gentisic, hydroxybenzoic, syringic and vanillic acids and catechol.
Exploration of heterosis for yield and morpho physiological traits in hybrid rice (Oryza sativa L.): A comparative study under flooded and aerobic conditions
The hybrids developed from these parental lines were found superior for most of the yield and physiological traits under aerobic condition and could serve as basic materials for developing high yielding hybrids suitable for water limited conditions.
Genetic analysis to assess the physiological efficiency of parental lines in rice ( oryza sativa L.)
Three CMS lines and 22 male parents were subjected to combining ability analysis and evaluated to identify the best combining parents for developing rice hybrids suitable for aerobic condition and these parental lines could be best utilized for developing high yielding hybrids suitablefor water limited conditions.
Changes in photosynthesis, chlorophyll fluorescence, gas exchange parameters and osmotic potential to salt stress during early seedling stage in rice (Oryza sativa L.).
Salinity is a serious problem all over the world with an average of 830 M ha being affected. In India, it’s about 13.3 M ha with coastal and inland salinity. The present study focused on effects of
Evaluation of rice (Oryza sativa L.) genotypes for salt tolerance
Histosols are a fragile natural resource, and subside when drained due to organic matter oxidation by aerobic microorganisms. The purpose of this study was to report on the inventory and crop use of
Effect of Rooting Pattern on Rice Productivity under Different Water Regimes
Three rice varieties, viz. ADT 31 (drought tolerant) CO 41 (upland) and IR 50 (drought susceptible), were employed to study their rooting patterns under different water regimes. ADT 31 had better
