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 complete inundation for up to 2 or 3 weeks. Several of these varieties have been released in South and Southeast Asia; nonetheless the… CONTINUE READING
