Leaf developmental behavior in rice (Oryza sativa L.) is one of the important agronomic characteristics, which not only determines vegetative growth but also influences grain yield. This study was conducted to identify quantitative trait loci (QTLs) for total number of leaves (TNL), days to the emergence of flag-leaf (DEF) and the leaf emergence rates (LER)(More)
Information on the genetics of aroma in rice facilitates breeding and selection of new aromatic varieties with high yield and good quality. Objective of the present study was to make clear the number of genes controlling aroma, and the allelism of aroma genes and the location of aroma gene(s) on the chromosome in three Japanese native aromatic rice(More)
Dwarf lilyturf (Ophiopogonjaponicus Ker-Gawl), a medicinal plant, hasbeen used for sore throat therapy andinhibition of physiological thirst sinceancient times. Experimental studies wereconducted to determine the allelopathic effectsof dwarf lilyturf plants on germination andgrowth of three main weed species, viz.,barnyardgrass (Echinochloa crusgalli(More)
Phenolic acids are secondary metabolic organic compounds produced by plants and often are mentioned as allelochemicals. This study was conducted to determine the genetic basis controlling the ferulic acid content of rice straw in a recombinant inbred (RI) population derived from a cross between a japonica variety, Asominori, with a higher content of ferulic(More)
