Inheritance of resistance to rice gall midge was investigated in 14 Fl, 10 F2, and 7
F3 populations. The resistant parents used were Samridhi, Usha, Surekha, R 244-3012,
and CR 95-181-2. Only one dominant gene was found to control resistance in each
of the resistant parents. The resistant gene present in Surekha was confirmed to
be different than that of Samridhi but was the same as that present in CR 95-181-2.
Keywords: Rice, inheritance, gall midge, resistance.
