Assessing hybrid sterility in Oryza glaberrima × O. sativa hybrid progenies by PCR marker analysis and crossing with wide compatibility varieties


Interspecific crossing of the African indigenous rice Oryza glaberrima with Oryza sativa cultivars is hindered by crossing barriers causing 100% spikelet sterility in F1 hybrids. Since hybrids are partially female fertile, fertility can be restored by back crossing (BC) to a recurrent male parent. Distinct genetic models on spikelet sterility have been… (More)
