Twenty-seven improved aromatic lines of germplasm and 18 non-aromatic disease-resistant genotypes of rice were test-crossed with four cytoplasmic male-sterile lines (IR 58025A, IR 62829A, PMS 3A and PMS 10A). Thirteen aromatic and 10 non-aromatic genotypes were selected based on pollen fertility, and crosses were repeated to confirm sterility-maintaining and fertility-restoring ability. Genotypes were categorized as effective restorers (> 80% spikelet fertility), partial restorers (21-79… CONTINUE READING
