Development of superior somaclones of aromatic local cultivar of rice (Oryza sativa L.)

Published on

The traditional local aromatic rice cultivars are poor
combiners. Here we report development of superior
somaclones plants through tissue culture. The somaclones,
TC 4/8 had the maximum yield followed by TC 5-1, TC 4/4,
TC 4/5, and TC 4/7. Yield increase of TC 4/8, TC-5-1 was
54.75% and 50.33% more over the yield of parental cultivar,
respectively. The plant tissue culture thus may be
recommended to create genetic variability in rice as a
trustworthy biotechnological tool.
