445 two chromosome substitution lines (CSSLs), SL502 and SL503, harboring chromosomal segments of Nona Bokra in the genetic background of Koshihikari, a cultivar closely related to Hitomebore10,11. We compared the growth of hst1, SL502 and SL503 at 0.75% NaCl (Supplementary Fig. 2). The 18 and 43% improved growth of hst1 as compared to SL503 and SL502, respectively, showed that this was a good starting point for breeding a salt-tolerant rice cultivar. For rapid identification of the mutation… CONTINUE READING
