Male reproductive development of rice (Oryza sativa L.) is very sensitive to drought. A brief, transitory episode of water stress during meiosis in pollen mother cells of rice grown under controlled environmental conditions induced pollen sterility. Anthers containing sterile pollen were smaller, thinner, and often deformed compared to normal anthers of well-watered plants. Only about 20% of the fully developed florets in stressed plants produced grains, compared to 90% in well-watered controls… CONTINUE READING
