Assessment of sodicity tolerance in landraces of rice (Oryza sativa L.)

Published on

The landraces of rice, Norungan and Mattaikar collected
from Tamil Nadu and, other adapted varieties viz., TRY 1,
TNAU Rice TRY (3), CSR 36 and CSR 23 were found to be
tolerant to sodicity at both seedling and reproductive
stages and could effectively be used either for commercial
cultivation in sodic soils or used as donors in the
hybridization programme for improving sodicity tolerance
in rice.
