Variation in the response of six diverse rice genotypes to imposed water stress was investigated in terms of leaf photosynthetic traits and leaf water potential measurements (Ψleaf) during and following a period of water stress. The Ψleaf reduced from 0 days up to 6th day of irrigation deprivation and the reduction in Ψleaf was more pronounced in Swarna and(More)
Nitrogen (N) plays an important role in plant growth, development and also one of the major factor for developing a high-yielding rice cultivars. Nitrogen use efficiency (NUE) in plants is a complex phenomenon that depends on a number of internal and external factors, which include soil N availability, its uptake and assimilation of carbon and nitrogen. An(More)
Carbon balancing within the plant species is an important feature for climatic adaptability. Photosynthesis and respiration traits are directly linked with carbon balance. These features were studied in 20 wild rice accessions Oryza spp., and cultivars. Wide variation was observed within the wild rice accessions for photosynthetic oxygen evolution or(More)
