A new rice gall midge resistance gene in the breeding line CR57-MR1523, mapping with flanking markers and development of NILs


Gall midge is the third most destructive insect pests of rice after stem borers and planthoppers. Host plant resistance has been recognized as the most effective and economic, means for gall midge management. With the characterization of a new gall midge biotype (GMB) 4M, unique feature of gall midge resistance in the breeding line CR57-MR1523 was… (More)
