IDENTIFICATION OF POTENT GAMETOCIDES FOR SELECTIVE INDUCTION OF MALE STERILITY IN RICE

Published on

Male sterilizing efficacy of 20 different oxanilate formulations was studied in comparison
to sodium methyl arsenate. The level of the efficacy differed depending on their
structure and position of substituents. Halogen substituted oxanilates proved relatively
more efficient when the substituent was at 4' position. Amongst the formulations
studied, ethyl 4'fluoroxanilate and ethyl 4'bromooxanulate were most potent inducing
the highest pollen sterility with least phytotoxicity.
