BREEDING FOR TOLERANCE TO IRON CHLOROSIS AND QUALITY CHARACTERS THROUGH ANTHER CULTURE IN RICE

Published on

Anther culture was under taken in three hybrids of rice with an objed to isolate
genotype having tolerance to iron chlorosis and improved grain quality. Callus
fonnation and plant generation was observed only in the hybrid Prabhavati x
Basmati 370, which was also very low. The spontaneously diplodised plants were
studied for their trueness. Their progenies were studied for the important characteristic
and advanced. Variability was quite evident among the different progenies for the
characters studied. Promising cultures were evaluated in multilocation trials for three
years. One of the cultures Parag 401 has been released for cultivation under upland
irrigated conditions. It is superior to the parent Prabhavati and check Sugandha for
yield and quality characters having tolerance to iron chlorosis.
