Short-term submergence is a recurring problem in many rice production areas. The SUB1 gene, derived from the tolerant variety FR13A, has been transferred to a number of widely grown varieties, allowing them to withstand complete submergence for up to 2 weeks. However, in areas where longer-term submergence occurs, improved varieties having higher tolerance levels are needed. To search for novel quantitative trait loci (QTLs) from other donors, an F2:3 population between IR72 and Madabaru, both… CONTINUE READING
