Bacterial blight (BB) is a serious disease of rice in India. We have used molecular marker-assisted selection in a backcross breeding program to introgress three genes (Xa21, xa13, and xa5) for BB resistance into Triguna, a mid-early duration, high yielding rice variety that is susceptible to BB. At each generation in the backcross program, molecular… CONTINUE READING
