Submergence is an escalating problem in many rice producing areas. A submergence tolerance gene, SUB1, derived from FR13A was previously introduced into six mega varieties through marker assisted backcrossing (MABC) with the final product selected at the BC2 or BC3 generation. Their phenotype was similar to the original varieties, but they could withstand(More)
Submergence is a common naturally occurring disaster in rice production in South and Southeast Asia. The development of mega-varieties with tolerance conferred by the SUB1 gene on chromosome 9 derived from FR13A that can withstand up to 2 weeks of complete submergence has been one of the best solutions. However, the recent severe conditions of flooding(More)
A total of 300 germplasm accessions collected from submergence-prone areas of Bangladesh were selected from the genebank of the Bangladesh Rice Research Institute (BRRI) for an allelic diversity study on submergence tolerance during the vegetative stage. Through screening under controlled submergence for three consecutive years, eight accessions were(More)
