Yield Potential Trends of Tropical Rice since the Release of IR8 and the Challenge of Increasing Rice Yield Potential
Factors that cause poor grain filling and low biomass production of the NPT lines have been identified and selecting parents with good grain filling traits, introduction of indica genes into NPT's tropical japonica background, and a refinement of the original NPT design are expected to improve the performance of theNPT lines.

Molecular diversity and multilocus organization of the parental lines used in the International Rice Molecular Breeding Program
The results suggest that selection for eco-geographical adaptation on multilocus associations was largely responsible for the maintenance of the extensive variation in the primary gene pool of rice. Expand
Two-line hybrid rice breeding manual.
Two-line hybrid rice breeding manual is a guide to rice breeding in the two-line system and can be used as a guide for other rice breeding projects or as a starting point for new projects. Expand
Development and use of a two-gene marker-aided selection system for fertility restorer genes in rice
STS markers RG140/PvuII and S10019/BstUI are well suited for marker-aided selection, enhanced backcross procedures, and pyramiding of Rf genes in agronomically superior non-restorer lines and suggest that similar biological processes control pollen fertility in this diverse cytoplasm. Expand
Heterosis breeding in rice (Oryza sativa L.)
Prospects of developing hybrid rice varieties elsewhere appear bright especially in countries that have organized seed production, certification and distribution programs and where hybrid seed can be produced at a reasonable cost. Expand
Mapping of the Rf-3 nuclear fertility-restoring gene for WA cytoplasmic male sterility in rice using RAPD and RFLP markers
The three RAPD markers and three RFLP markers, RG532, RG140 and RG458, were found to be closely linked to Rf-3 in the two F2 populations and their use in facilitating the development of hybrid rice is discussed. Expand
