Biochemical markers for cold tolerance in Boro rice

Published on

26 genotypes of rice were grown in winter season nursery
to study their tolerance ability against low temperature
stress at seedling stage and to find out suitable
biochemical parameters, which may help in screening for
cold tolerance at seedling stage. Out of several biochemical
parameters, non- reducing sugar and phenol content were
found to be most efficient markers for screening of cold
tolerant genotypes at seedling stage as these traits
exhibited highly significant correlation with cold tolerance
as well as among themselves.
