LACK of appreciation of the importance of length of day in determining the onset of flowering has vitiated much of the earlier work on the inheritance of age in rice. No genetic analysis of photoperiod response in this plant has yet been published. In the past two years, I have investigated the inheritance of photoperiod sensitivity. The Ceylon pure line, Vellai Ilankalayan 28061, which blooms approximately one hundred days after sowing, and is relatively insensitive to the photoperiod, was… CONTINUE READING
